Milkshake Dress

Heerhugowaard, N...






I made this dress for my boss his wedding I attended last friday. I work with only men and they’ve decided on how my dress should look like. They came up with the low back, the slit and the color-combination.
I choose to make a build-in bra because of the low back. I used padded cups from an old bra and stitched them to the lining.
I think I will lenghten the skirt before the next time I will wear it… maybe with a little ruffle to make it more latin-like

Material Notes

satin, jersey, ribbon

    Thank you for your comments. Yeah, the guys told me how the dress should look like. Originally they wanted it to have a low cut front also, but I thought it would be too much, so I decided to make it straight, I think it looks better on me too.
