Description

THIS WAS NOT MADE BY ME

but by a friend of the family! It was for my sisters wedding.
I came across a picture of this dress that i liked while looking for a yr 12 formal dress, and saved it. Then this lady told me she could replicate it, I thought she did very well :) though i didn’t want it as short as the model’s cause it was a wedding.
It’s why i began to sew, amazed by people who could look at pictures and make clothes!

I thought I’d share the beginnings of my love of sewing, and possible help inspire others. Before the projects on Burda Style, I’d basically had no sewing experience!

    It looks more like a nightgown on the model… but on you, wow! A gorgeous summer formal wear!
