Elie Saab inspired craft dress

The dress took me half of year to decorate, but the pattern and sewing it together is very simple. The dress was inspired by Elie Saab collection 2012, but I made my own changes ofcourse. The occasion I made it for was my church wedding ceremony.I Never made any clothes before, so Burda patterns helped me a lot in this case. I chose the most simple pattern of a princess dress. The upper part just simple slip top with V-back (I just took the pattern of V-neck :)) and for the skirt I used the whole cirkle and a half cirkle pattern. The original dress has sleeves on it, but i didn’t have time to decorate it all, so I made little angels wings :) out of tulle. I cut off the oval form piece and cut it on half, then overlocked it with zigzac and put it on the right places:) The biggest part of all this project was decoration. I put on sequins, beads and flowers all by my hands :) for the flowers I used synthetic chiffon and craft tools to cut it out.

The dress:
1 layer synthetic stretch fabric
