Maroon Empire Dress

Algeciras, Spain






-It was love at first sight: Those waist yokes,the V neck, the puffy sleeves and the below-the-knee lenght..perfect for my maroon fabric!
I recomend lining it completely

This is dress number 102 08/2012.vBut I cannot link it to it!
The line is very elegant and I think it flatters all body shapes

Material Notes

Stretch wool crepe, lining, zipper and two shoulder pads I didn´t use

    Hola. Te quedo genial! Estoy por hacer este vestido. Como voy a usar satén elástico, hice primero la muestra en jersey de algodón. Me queda bastante bien el talle 40, solo tengo que ajustar un poco la cintura. Pero quería consultarte por las mangas. Me pasa que dan la sensación de limitarme un poco los movimientos. Vi que a tí te pasa esto mismo en una foto de tu blog. (2da foto) Sé que es mínimo, pero te parece que debería hacerle alguna modificación? Desde ya muchas gracias por compartir tu trabajo. Gabi

    Está bellísimo, Merche! El color y la hechura te quedan muy bien. Gracias por la sugerencia de forrarlo completo, tenés toda la razón!

      Muchas gracias. Yo no entiendo una falda sin forrar, a no ser que sea en denim!

      Thank you! The sleeves are a bit too dramatic for my taste, but I had to try them. Oh the shoes! Lethal weapons are those! ;)

      Thank you! I agree with you. Black can be misleading!
