Minna Dress Gold with Variation

Added Aug 26, 2009

Chapel Hill, Nor...






I made this dress for a formal night on a cruise.. it basically follows the same pattern but i made the straps using the same fabric at the dress.. it was a little hard but I figured out how to make the V neck word eventually..

I am not exactly sure what kind of fabric this is.. It might be a satin or blend?

This dress itself is not currently for sale although I am considering making one available for custom order on my Etsy site http://www.azurechina.etsy.com

This dress IS based on the Minna dress.. when I try to check that box yes however, the listing gets messed up an I cannot add it.

Material Notes

I am not exactly sure what kind of fabric this is.. It might be a satin or blend?

    You did a wonderful job, this pattern always seemed difficult especially using a delicate material, absolutely beautiful.

      Thanks! I’m really glad you like it!

      Not really stretchy.. I think I forgot to add that I added an invisible zipper.. not sure if this was part of the original pattern or not actually.
