The Great Gatsby's dress

Added Jun 12, 2012

I made the vintage pattern from Burda of May 2012 in a lighte grey/blue crepe. I love the low back and the delicate draping. I wore it to a wedding last week-end and it got me lots of compliments.

    I hope I don’t get crap for saying this, but I think the hemline is too long. It’s making you look shorter than you probably are. I feel like the hemline would look best if it was right at your knees. It would elongate your body.

    Anyway, great dress. I love the back.

      I am actually very short Laurelle. But you are right, it looks too long on the photo. But that’s because of the angle, in real the dress hits just under the knees.

    Great dress, the neckline and length look great on you and I love the colour choice.

      Thanks Mary, it must have been quite challenging to match your stripes on your dress. But the result is very nice.
