Black Dress with White Pipings

Added Aug 17, 2009

, Japan






The other day I totally fell in love with one of the black dresses in some magazine, and eventually started to think to sew a knock-off for myself. The dress is made of polyester black jersey. I put the contrasting pipings, exactly same as the original dress (would) had, according to my memories. I was very happy sewing it. I’m happy with how it turned out, too.

Material Notes

black polyester jersey and white rayon jersey.

    This dress is so unbelievable. The back of the dress is as wonderful as the front, the violin shape is so seductive! I love the fabric, the texture! Your dress is amazing!
