I made this dress for my school’s Winter Formal. The pattern was hand made by myself as well! Its kind of funny how you can imagine something turning out in a completely different way then when you started, and this is no different! I thought this dress would end up having lace sleeves, but since i did the majority of the sewing a few hours before the dance, I decided not to add that part! Anyways, i hope you all like how it turned out because i sure did! I think ive had enough of working with lace for now…..
-Black stretch velvet for the main parts of the bodice and skirt
-Black lace for the tank topish bodice
