I made this dress to wear to my friend’s wedding on the weekend. I did it without sleeves to make it a bit dressier. I ended up taking it in quite a bit in the upper body area and the shoulders to make a snug fit. This is normal for me as I am a size smaller up top than around my hips and waist.

Material Notes

Not sure what the fabric is, I got it from the op shop. It has fine black horizontal and vertical lines. I like the drape. The band is made from satin. I also used a long blue zip and the iron on hem stuff (name?) as I was worried about adding bulk and leaving marks if I sewed it. It was the first time I have used it and was quite pleased with the results.





I mucked up the shoulders initally so my Mum made a suggestion on how to fix it. Really easy and 100% better.

Husband for the photos. Tam for the wedding!

    did you print your pattern for this from home? if so, did it take 15 pages to print? lol! I don’t know if it’s supposed to take that much!?! :)

    I like your version without the sleeves and the black satin band adds a nice touch. Very elegant!

    That´s beautiful! I also want to make the Danielle dress. I think I will do it without sleeves, too. Well done!
