Contrasting Belt and Applique Dress

Added Jul 8, 2017

by Elina Belova

Riga, Latvia






The dress is a wedding guest dress. For the belt and the trim I used contrasting pattern fabric that was actually a leftover. For more eye-catching look I hand sewed some flowers on the front piece of the skirt.
The pattern was used for the top. I only did the back a bit higher. It’s a good pattern and probably I will use it again in the future. The skirt is 3/4 circle. And the dress has full lining underneath.

    Beautiful! Do you have any advice on working with chiffon? I find it intimidating.

      Thanks for the comment! I have learned that it’s very important to use the right needle for the sewing machine. The smaller the needle, the smoother it goes through the fabric. And when I cut the pieces, I try not to move them around much to have cleaner edges.
      I hope, you will find your own way to enjoy sewing with chiffon! Best wishes!
