Concert Dresses ♫

Added Feb 6, 2016

Nedre Vats, Norway






♪I feel Good.. ♫ was the opening song we had on our Soul Concert last week.
We were supposed to have a black dress, and my choice was the pattern #109 Burda 12/2015. I have used coated jersey with snake print, and it looks like leather. I had to sew the pleats down so it should stay in place since the fabric was so soft. I like the pocket details in the sides, and it was very comfy to wear.

We had a little break while the band still were playing, and we changed to glamour dresses.
I made this sequins/embroidery shift dress and the good thing was that I could take it on without opening the zipper, because we had to change very quickly.. I think it was a good choice for the happening. Cheers! ;)

Material Notes

Coated jersey with snake print, Sequins and silver embroidery.




Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Rock, Classic, Evening Wear

    Beautiful dresses!! Now if you could just send them my way, in my size of course, then I wouldn’t have to make them. :-)

    Wonderful result! I like that dress with back cutout more and more. The fabric matched perfectly. Looks very noble and elegant. And glam is glam:-)

    another talent to add to you list, singing. how wonderful. I am so non musical, one of these persons that sing in the shower or car, when nobody is around, hahaha. as for the dresses, gorgeous. I love the fabrics, and even though you only sew the pleats down because the material is very thin, I like how it looks. it is a great pattern that, isn’t it?
