I have wanted to make a dress similar to the one worn by Serena VDW in Gossip Girl (see last picture) since the day the episode was aired – now I’ve finally done it!
This dress has a sweetheart neckline, a dropped waist, bubble hem skirt with pick-up detail and a two-toned oversized bow.
I have attempted to “tone down” the original design slightly in order to make it more wearable.
For lots more photos and how I’ve made this, please visit my blog
