Wirral, United K...
Decided i’d try my arm at making a dress for my friends wedding & wanted to do something a bit different than i’d usually wear. So i decided on a dress with a bodice top going into 1/2 circular knee length skirt. Am really pleased with the finished design as i’d not done boning before, i also attempted a bagged out bodice which i wasn’t 100% sure how to do but that turned out really well aswell.
The belt actually took the longest to make as i kept making mistakes… ooops. It’s a pleated belt but you can’t really see it clearly in these pics…I also made a purse to match but haven’t managed to upload all the pics as yet so will add more later.
