Green Evening Dress

Added Jan 19, 2010

Montpellier, France






This is a dress I made for the biggest party of the year in college, next february.
It is a bit creased because I travelled with it, I’ll have to iron it before The night !

I also cut a ribbon in the fabric that I wear around the neck (you don’t really see it on the pic).

(° Thanks to Ichigogirl for the top and Chissa83773 for the skirt! °)

(( Update : What a great party ! Those pics are a bit blurred but there you can see the colour and the “necklace”… And my lovely boyfriend ! ))

Material Notes

Silk was too expensive for me… So Satin! And an invisible zipper.

    very cute, it looks a little “can-can” :P

    i’m not sure about the neck ribbon, the straps of the dress could be enough detail in that area ;)

    wow. This is pretty. It reminds me of the dress that Keira Knightly wore in ATONEMENT. That emerald green looks so pretty on us fair skinned girls. I was actually thinking about making a maxi style dress in that emerald green ALA the above mentioned dress. Very good work and I love the bunching!
