My high school garduation was coming closer and closer and I didn’t have the dress for my party so I decided to make one. I’m so happy that all turned out well and just in time as making this dress wasn’t maybe the most clever thing to do under all that graduation and exam stress..
It took a while before I had made up my mind about the final design but from the beginning one of my ideas was to make quite straight dress, not a puffy-one but not a tight shift dress either. This was first time for me with scalloping and I’m allready fallen in love with it. Spalloping is like peter pan collars; they make every clothe more adorable and I really have to control myself from adding them everywhere.. The lace layer on the bodice is constructed with lace ribbon – more tricky than I thought!
