Satin dance dress

Added Jun 4, 2008

North Queensland...






Pink and black dress worn with black petticoat underneath. The circle is a skirt with twelve panels. I drafted the skirt panel by simply dividing my quarter circle pattern into 3 and adding seam allowances. I had some trouble with the satin (which shows around the neckline and the bias binding on hem) because it was a soft satin. For the bodice I modified a pattern. (I’ll add the exact one later)

Material Notes

pink “fantasy” satin,
black charmeuse,
black lining

    What a great photo – you cant see any problems with the binding at all, and the pettycoat is fantastic!

    must say, for a circle skirt, your bias binding is pretty neat as is. i hate using bias taping for extremely curved angles because it warps so badly!
