little black new years eve dress

Broechem, Belgium






I made this dress for new years eve.
The top is from pattern: Swing Dress 08/2012 #133, I like the boat neck and cap sleeves.
The peplum part is from pattern: Peplum Top 08/2012 #113, I made it straight instead of longer at the back.
The skirt part is from pattern: Pencil Skirt 08/2012 #111C, but way shorter.
On top of this, I need size 34 on top and size 36 on my bottom.
It was a disaster to combine this all.
But a nip here and there, it got finished.

Material Notes
