Simple dress with 7/8 sleeves and V-neck. A quick project but pretty effective because of the fabric’s pattern which I liked a lot because of the colours combination.
The pattern is dress # 5 from Diana Moden 10/2013 (Ukrainian edition). It is a casual dress of a loose silhouette. To make it… sparkle I added front darts for the slight fitting, lengthened the dress for 4 cm, deepened the neck hole for about 5 cm and sewed a thin belt.
The outfit is comfortable and feminine, I like it very much. The jewelry is an important and special part of the image this time and I made it myself as well.
My tips for the sewing are here
