Description

This was my first ‘average-difficult’ pattern! I wanted a silk prom dress, Carrie Bradshaw style, to wear for a wedding and parties this summer. I daren’t even add up the hours it took me to make this dress…I could have bought one WAY cheaper, but hey, it’s an orginal and fits perfectly. Plus, I LOVE it and it makes me happy every time I look at it. This photo is bad, taken in the mirror. Will upload better shortly…

Material Notes

Mega expensive checked silk, dress net, lining fabric

    if it makes you feel a million dollars, it’s money well spent :p we can’t really see the fabric but the fit is great! well done!
