Description

I wanted to replicate one of my mom’s dress, its sophisticated look rather than its exact pattern :) I kept the low-back and the back bow but changed all the other elements.
It wasn’t an easy thing sewing such a thin fabric but I pulled it off. The only problem I had was an uneven finish at the back (you can see it in the last photo) but fortunately it’s covered by the bow and it’s impossible to get noticed. Still, it bothers me that I let this happen. I’ve only seen it at the end when it would have been much too difficult to do something about it. I promise to pay more attention next time :)
