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
To make a bow just like mine (or one that’s even better), see tutorial
To make a skirt with bubble hem and/or pick-up details, see tutorial
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
