Takes the Bronze

Added Jul 30, 2010

Perth, Australia






Made using Vogue 1155 and silk taffeta of a shade called “antique”, I adore my new cocktail dress! Totally love the edginess in the asymmetry of this sophisticated dress and those sharp out-there shoulders. A review of this pattern is on my blog at http://handmadebycarolyn.blogspot.com/2010/07/takes-bronze.html

Material Notes

silk taffeta, lining fabric, 3 buttons, 2 hook and eye closures




Garment Type
Evening Wear

    The dress is without a doubt a stunner! Colour, pattern and choice of fabric, but the most amazing thing for me in this picture, is really your Cat & Dog wanting to model as well. LoL, it’s really funny. I have a black cat just like that and she always goes around me when I’m photographing something, so she’s almost always on my pictures.

    Anyway, great projects, cute pets!
