My friend (on the pics) told me she had been invited to a wedding and did not have anything to wear…
She was very happy with the project result, got some compliments at the party, too.
The pattern was custom made. The style (shoulder straps+belt) was loosely based on a D&G Swarovski dress I saw on eBay. Material selection and the design (+fittings) was by me. The actual cutting/sewing (98%) credits go to my mom, she pulled it off in 3 days.
