Dress with bands on the shoulder

Added May 30, 2018

by Evmorales







This gorgeous dress is from the 06/2018 magazine. It will be my changing dress the day of my wedding. I bought the fabric to make a similar dress, thank God I found this one. It was kind of tricky to do the dart/band attachment, but once you get it, it is so beautiful. The armhole instructions were not intuitive, at least for me…and I am a Burda certified teacher! I used an exposed zipper, because after finishing it turned out to be quite small/exact to my size (the story of my life). After all, I am super excited with my new dress. I can’t wait to wear it and show off my new dress at my wedding. I added embroidered appliques and attached them with heat & bond. The seams were too thick to embroider directly on the dress. Although I made this one in May, we can count it as my June #BurdaChallenge2018.

      Thanks! Oh, you have to see the actual final version. I embroidered appliqués and set them cascading from left bust to back.
