NYE Dress ;)

Added Jan 1, 2014

I found this pattern in Ottobre 5/2012. Normally I would have used two different fabrics as in the pattern since I love mixing colors and fabrics, but this time I thought it would be nicest to use one color for this lovely cobalt jacquard stretch fabric with roses. The dress has a little sculpture neck, and at first I was not sure I liked it, but now I’m happy with the dress :)

I did use the same jacquard stretch fabric, only in red for this dress I made earlier:

Happy New Year everyone!

    The fabric is gorgeous, I think you made a good choice not to mix fabrics in this dress! The neckline gives it character…it’s elegant and sophisticated but unique at the same time.
