Graduating With Roses

Tadaa!!! My graduation dress, that I have been dreaming about for 6 months!

This is a complete copycat of juliabobbin’s dress

Well, now that I look at Julia’s dress, I see that her sleeves were less full and shorter, I may like it a bit better… Oh well anyway I loved my dress too.

I made the pattern myself entirely – I never found a tutorial to draft a princess seam dress, so I just tried… And I love the fact that there is no waistline !

Julia did a great tutorial for the sleeves, that I completely followed. The only thing I would have like to know before was how many stripes were needed, so here it is : I used approximately 12 stripes of 1m long per sleeve.
It was not very difficult to make, only long and repetitive.

I also made the clutch after purchasing the clasp and chain online. Not that difficult to make either! I think it is very cute :)

The party was amazing, and I had a wonderful time !

Material Notes

Poplin – 3m
Zipper (invisible, on the side)

    Very lovely dress and fit – and to think you drafted it all yourself! It really made you stand out among the boring suits and other ordinary dresses. Very well done! And congratulations on the graduation…now you are a real doctor eh? ;)
