Purple Winter Party Dress

This dress is made from Vogue 9668. I had to change quite a lot about the fit on this dress: I made an FBA and added width in the waist and length to the skirt. You can read more about this project on my blog. Come visit me!

    What a beautiful dress, you look lovely in it! I have started work on a winter dress in purple fabric too – as the Australian winter is not long away :)

    Looks really good. Alterations and fittings can be such a pain (I also need to do FBA) but it’s worth it when you get results like this.

    this is a great dress.. nothing better than making one yourself to fit you exactly. And this compliments you so nicely. The color is gorgeous.
