Golden Trend

When I got an invitation for an annual carnival party in February, I decided not to loose my time on the search for that ideal pattern of a dress but simply make something from a fresh March issue of BurdaStyle magazine. Their wedding collections are always very festive and usually offer several dressy models. I loved many of their dresses and eventually chose this set of a pencil skirt with a peplum top.

I had this silk gold jacquard that I had planned to use for something more casual.. But this set seemed like an ideal plan – I could also wear the skirt and the top afterwards separately for that sparkly flash that is so in trend right now. I made an experimental model in cotton to see how the bustier fits. As I had only 5mm wide rigilene for the seams of bustier, I used two bands of rigilene for each seam. For my height 174cm I made the bodice and the peplum detail longer by about 1cm.

The top has lining in the bodice part. The smooth silk surface of the fabric allowed to make the skirt without any lining.

    Nice, so simple yet elegant. I can’t believe you did this on your own. I wish I had the same talent as yours. I am even having a hard time mending some clothes, I couldn’t imagine sewing up a full dress. But before I look into this further, I will have to check this site first in offering some help in accomplishing my resume https://reviewresumeservice.blogspot.com/.
