Description

This dress is conceived with quite difficulties. I have started the dress wanting to make a Breakfast at Tiffany’s little black dress’s back, with gathered skirt. However, after I’ve made the top part, the little what I like to call “wings” in the back looked more sporty than classy, due to the stretch of the fabric. So I thought that is not going to work. I made a little sporty top with that instead (photos coming soon). Then I thought I’d make a more off the shoulder, boat necked dress with this fabric, since the purple looks so… royal. The top part turned out great, and I attached the skirt. I had wanted to try something with scallops for a while, so I thought — why not make the skirt scalloped? well… big mistake! the dress came out all… childish and disney-ish. Bleh. I had to chop the scallop off and well, it resulted in this shortness of the skirt.

I think its a pretty good addition to my maternity wardrobe, not sure if I love it though!
