Description

When my best friend saw me wearing this dress she liked it very much so I decided to make one for her in her favrte color: purple. I used again jesey instead of chiffon and made it maxi because my friend doesn’t wear short skirts. I think this length is perfect for this pattern and makes the dress look more romantic and dramatic.

    You’re right, it’s beautiful with this length too. With that dress you understand what “empire” waist is all about, as the dress looks so romantic and… imperial!

    Πολύ ωραίο φόρεμα, ιδιαίτερα το πάνω μέρος είναι πολύ κολακευτικό. Πιστεύω θα ήταν ωραίο και σε λευκό.

    Wonderful outfit: your image is right from a Renaissance picture, the dame who left her portrait to get some admiration… great, just great. It fits you perfect and the colour suits you so well !!! :-) Maybe it’s not worth giving it to your friend ? ;-)
