New Year's Dress

This is my first dress! It is a little scandelous… but looked beautiful from 08-09:) I drafted my own simple a-line skirt pattern and spent lots of time hand sewing the bust area. The scolloped glitter lace was 40 dollars a METRE!!!..so i simply used it as an accent! I’d love to hear what others think of my first dress!

Material Notes

1/6th of a metre- scalloped glitter lace

1 metre Black Satin

Bra sewn in—

1 invisible zipper
