Space Travel Dress

A dress I made for my friend’s birthday after she picked it out herself. In burdastyle magazine it was part of an asian themed editorial, but when we saw it, we immediately thought of science-fiction and space travel instead. I think it’s totally something that could be worn on Star Trek and the likes :)
So with another colour combination the dress is now no longer at home in the far east, but in the far reaches of space.

By the way, the pictures were taken on my rooftop. I don’t have a balcony, but my roof is like my private terrace and that’s way better anyway.

Oh and how about you come on over and visit my blog? I like it there, maybe you will, too :)

    Please don’t take this wrong—-the character that wears red in the Star Trek shows always dies. LOL But your dress is lovely!

    I love this dress, but in Burda made of black sateen it was to elegant for me. I love the colors and fabric you’ve chosen.
