Suede Leopard Peak Shoulder Dress

Added Oct 23, 2011

by Darren Nesbitt

New York, New Yo...






My 14 year old sister is a super model in the making and needed something to wear to her first high school homecoming.. This silhouette is quite popular right (structured shoulders sleek fit). So I added some character to her dress by making it suede and with the whole back being green.

The texture and color blocking make this piece stand out from the crowd.

Material Notes

Leopard print suede, Forest Green Suede.




Garment Type
Ethnic, Vintage
Leather/Fur, Velvet

      No pre-existing pattern. I taught myself pattern making with a few books, a ruler, pencil and paper lol

    what a great idea, making the back in another colour ! I am sure this did make her stand out (not that she’d need much help with that, she looks gorgeous !) And the shoes are great too :-))
