This was made just before christmas for various christmas parties and new year ! It worked so well and my sister still wears it out now (still very suitable for all seasons!) and gets many compliments! Partly due to the fabric i must say, as it is a beautiful fabric. However the pattern works very well as a simple tight dress similar to those sold in American Apparel. I made the pattern by moulding fabric to a dressmakers model and working from that after a few alterations. It could be made backless but i chose a full back to make it more formal. Overall a great success!
I used Stretch velvet with sewn on sequins.
