soaked in Wine,plunging lapelled back dress

Subang Jaya, Mal...






I have always wanted to make something with the plungng lapel back design.
I tot i found a great material when the interior of this one is in a darker shade, creating a more obvious lapel effect for the back (i know im a sucker for all this big and bright!).

i got myself a gorgeous rich wine color. and made a sash to match with the lapel contrasting color.
The fabric actually has this tiny embroided squares on it!

sometimes i thought this could be too shiny, what do u think?

    LOVE it! Where on earth did you find the satin with the tiny squares on it?? I was making a sexy PJ set yesterday and that would have been even more perrrrfect that the striped royal blue satin I used.
