Pink One-Shoulder Ruffle Dress

Added Jan 10, 2010

Toronto, Canada






I made this dress for my friend for semi-formal. The polyester I used for the ruffle has really cool metallic fibres weaved through it and pairs nicely with the soft pink knit dress.
The photos of the dress hanging are right before final pressings, you can see in the photo of her wearing it that we sprayed the ruffle with stiffening spray and shaped it with a low-heat curling iron so it wouldn’t fall flat. I was really pleased on how this turned out, as I made it without a pattern

Material Notes

Stretch Knit, Polyester




Garment Type
Blends, Knits/Jersey, Polyester

    Short, cute, love it! Love the tip about stiffening the fabric and then curling it to make it stick!

    Sooo cute… I’ve been hunting down a 70’s Vogue pattern that is very similar – but no luck! :O( This is gorgeous – you did a great job, a fantastic colour.
