Romantic Evening Dress

Added Sep 27, 2013

by Claire van K...

Antwerp, Belgium






I made this dress for a friend, it’s an evening dress, but based on the pattern of a very casual dress(which i used many times before, i love it!). I made the skirt a little shorter, added an underskirt, and added a bow in the front. That’s all!

Material Notes

I used a silk/fake silk blend, dark red(2 meters should be enough). For the underskirt black polyester. A black zipper in the back, 55 cm long, and a small hook and eye to close the back nicely.

    Beautiful dress. I have made this one but didn’t occur to me to use fine fabric! Thank you for the inspiration.
