I made this dress the day before my parents’ 50th birthday celebrations. It came together really quickly, and is a really flattering princess-seamed dress with a little flaring at the base of the dress.
The pattern is New Look 6670. The back also has quite a low v-cut, matching the front. Makes undergarments a little tricky!
The material makes this dress, I loved it as soon as I saw it. I cut the pattern of the dress to maximise the design of the material, and so that it would look like the vine was growing, and weaving up from the bottom!
It’s fully lined with a silky-polyester, and the main material is a satin. Bought from Brunswick Fabrics for about $8m I think?
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
