There seems to be a theme developing here. This is my second cocktail dress in as many weeks and not a martini in sight. This is from 11/2008, a fitted dress with pleated bust detail, very neatly finished to the inside with bodice facings. The dress was a delight to make and I loved the neat, unfussy finish. The fabric is a brocade with silver thread that I got as a ‘find’ in a box of fabric a lady gave to me. I’ve been waiting to get the right project for this fabric and came across this dress, which is perfect. For extra detail, it could be embellished across the bodice.
