Mirror Dots Ruffle Dress

Added Oct 10, 2009

by Les Bonnes V...

Paris, France






At some point in life, you realize that all of your friends are getting married,
In my life, that point is now, and I have had the pleasure of being invited to many weddings.
The only problem in this otherwise joyous occasion of course, is the dress.
A cocktail dress (that I want) usually runs in the $300 range.
I would wear the same dress many times, if only the same people were not attending those weddings.

So what’s a girl to do?
4 more yards of mirror dot fabric and one Cynthia Rowley cocktail dress pattern later, Voila.
Total project cost about $50. Which is, of course, better than $300.

Material Notes

4 Yards of woven fabric with body.

    I’ve been wondering what this pattern would look like on a real person. Cute!

    The dress is absolutely gorgeous! I would love to match it with a golden trench coat and shiny pumps. You will definitely look great.

    I like the way the ruffle is graduated around the neckline. Are the edges serged?
