I got the fabric off fabric.com but they no longer have it...I got it at the same time I got the pumpkin slinky knit I used on my first version of Giorgio's top.
The dress went together very easily...and looks as great as all the reviews suggest. This truly is an innovative style...looks good on so many different people in all different shapes and sizes! I definitely plan on making this in black next with a black and magenta lace overlay...pretty!
I prepared my pattern before cutting using The Sewing Lawyer's recommendations to extend the facing so it does not flip out and close up the armhole a little so it is not hanging so low. I made my pattern pieces exactly how she pictures them in her blog post. Genius!! Glad I had those tips ahead of time!
ike Rumpelstiltskin from Once Upon a Time. They were all gold and sparkly from the sparkles on the dress.
Also, my makeup was super fun! I used turquoise sparkly eyeliner and bright blue DiorShow mascara.
Lastly, we cannot forget the awesome shoes!
|bebe brand....from years ago..I got them in pink at the time as well!|
