I'm 13-first dress

Added Feb 20, 2012

I must confess that I am very proud of this dress. It’s my first dress and I’m only thirteen. I made ​​it on the mannequin but I pass him myself. There is no thread hanging on it anymore and everything is nicely finished, because I’m quite a perfectionist. I have a purple satin-like fabric used, a purple zipper and a lot of bias tape, even purple of course. It was also the first time I used a zipper. Throughout the dress is about 3.5 meters fabric. Unfortunately I do not have a gala to wear it but making it was very nice too. I think I worked about a week on it. I hope you like it!

Material Notes

satin-like fabric, zipper, bias tape

    Wow. 13?!?! I almost can’t believe it, your talent so young and your patience to make a ballgown is amazing and inspirational. If you keep interested and keep working at it, you could have a career in fashion design.

    This dress is really good i love what you did with the drapery and i must say the back is really amazing, i love it when a dress has a open back i cant wait to see more from you. I myself am 16 and im still learning how to draw a pencil skirt pattern and look at you your way ahead of me. I feel some friendly competition coming on. LOL

      Bedankt! Ik hou ook erg veel van paars omdat je het eigenlijk altijd wel aan kan, in de zomer of in de winter :)
