Yellow satin matric dress

Added Jan 18, 2011

by JCStewart







This hasn’t been made yet but I thought I would put up the design so far.

Material Notes

I plan on using a soft yellow satin, with a yellow or cream coloured voile nylon for the skirt cover and get some lace to trim the voile with. Then around the waist and back I want to embroider beads to the dress over gold lace.

    Sure I can but it’s a long drive to durban. I would much rather stay there though.

    I made a ball gown for one of my daughters in 2009 in an electric saphire blue stretch satin in which the straps and edging were trimmed with the most amazing Italian made silver matt sequin type fabric. This was the style my daughter drew for me to attempt a self drafted pattern with – she took my breath away on the night. I’ll investigate how to post a picture for you if you would like to see it.

      I’d love to. It sounds like a beautiful dress. What was the dress for?

      Thanx. I can’t wait either. I am going to have so much fun with it. I love anything vintage. I think they had better style back then.

      Actually that was the dress that my customer chose to. I went to look for materials today but Maritzburg has a limited selection. :(
