Fancy Cake Dress

Added Jul 23, 2010

It really does remind me of a cake :-)
After I thought I finished the dress, I found out that it was way transparent. so I had to add the lining underneath. That done, there was an awkward bulge in the seam between the upper and lower dress pieces, so I added the lacy trim to hide it.

Material Notes

very soft and light cotton. for the lining – I had to use some syntactic stuff I found in my stash… as I swore not to come near a fabric shop in the next few month (I don’t have any more room for those fabrics!)

    This dress is great. And you are prefect to wear it. I like it better than the one from the magazine.

    I think it’s lovely and the length shows off your great legs.

    How cute! I’d probably make one a little longer and with sleeves. :P

      actually, puffed sleeves could go really well with this dress… I might try it
