Cocktail green taffeta dress

This is the last party dress that I have done.
It’s really comfortable and flattering. The “starbust design” at the center helps focusing all the attention in that point (disguising other weaker points of the body).

Material Notes

Stretch taffeta (green-black), 1 invisible zipper




Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Bridal, Classic, Evening Wear

    If I hadn’t already agreed to sell my soul for several other items, I would soooo sell my soul for this dress (and the figure to wear it!) Absolutely beautiful!

    LOVE! You did an amazing job, looks so professional. I also adore the colour. I have some taffeta in a similar coulour- did you find it hard to work with?

      No, I usually chose tafetta for this kind of work… it’s so much easier sewing taffeta than silk (for example)… and this one is made of stretch taffeta: don’t need to have a lining (I’ve never had issues with marks of my underwear or pantyhouse).
      I believe this fabric is ideal to have a good result making the starbust.
      Good luck sewing this dress!

      Muchas gracias! Te recomiendo hacer este vestido, es muy cómodo y sólo necesita un poco de paciencia adicional para armar los pliegues del frente… el resultado hace del vestido algo único y distinguido.

      Muchas gracias! Recomiendo este modelo, hace muy buena silueta y es muy exclusivo (no te encontrarás con nadie en una fiesta con un vestido siquiera parecido)

    Beautiful! The staburst design came out so nicely and the color is to die for.
