Spring greens cocktail dress

This is a pretty definite emerald green, made all the more vibrant in this raw silk. The dress is from Gertie’s Ultimate Dress book, which gives great instructions and has a range of bodice and skirt options that can be mixed and matched to create lots of styles.
I really love this dress and look forward to styling it and getting some cocktails away from my front door.

    Classical sheath dress for coctail. I like – and texture of fabric and color of the dress. Good job! You are well done!

    Just gorgeous!! I love jewel tones on fair ladies – way to work what you’ve got! And definitely enjoy yourself some sophisticated cocktails out!! I support that decision!
