chiffon dress

Espoo, Finland






this was a dress i made in coordination with the shirt i made for my husband, hence the similar colours.

i saw a picture of Kirsten Dunst wearing a dress like this, and decided that i HAVE to have it :D

so i made it…but a more simplified one, of course, cause i know my limitations as a beginner :p

this was made, again, without any pattern. i just started cutting, and sewing..
it took around 2 days to finish, and the most time was spent on sewing the beads & ribbons, cause i had to do it by hand.

i am SOOO pleased with how it turned out.

PS. please ignore the mess on the background of the pictures..as i said before, we were in a hurry to leave for a ballet performance, so we didn’t have time to think of the perfect background :D

Edit: hopefully the pictures work better this time :p

Material Notes

2-tone chiffon, chiffon, and satin as a lining.





myself, and the 2nd picture (of Kirsten Dunst) was from www.actressarchives.com

    sigh i don’t know why the pictures are not showing the whole dress (eventhough they’re all no bigger than 400px wide). i’ve tried a million times already, and now i give up.
