Bride's maid dress

  No comments    
This dress is made for the only and very honoured bride's maid, the elegant Jan, Doctor Jan.
It is from Vogue's Vantage pattern. Jan chose a heavy woven satin. she wanted to use the wrong side of the fabric which I thought was very unique.

Some pics from the pattern.

Then pics of the finished dress.

The top part of it---color altered by the 12-dollar-Canadian-tire-lamp.
 (with a handmade flower of my humble and simple design)

The hooked neck:)

The gathering around chest.

The invisible zipper at back.

The very narrow bridle hem.

The first version of the dress.. as the fabric is dense and heavy, it somehow looked too much due to the sheer volume of gatherings around the waist line. we decided that it had to be done twice-- to lose some weight...

And then, it became lighter, both, the top and bottom. see the difference?

Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you have a good day and stay calm and content and happy.
