Do you remember this picture from Pinterest I showed you a while back? Well I’ve only gone and made the damn dress!
The instructions are very simple and easy to follow yet they create such an elegant dress, the measurements are for a taller girl than myself so I’d decrease them by 5cm all round next time.
I decided to go with grey this time as I don’t own many grey dresses and it’s a slight change from black. It’s still a tone and I think a muted colour brings more elegance to a dress like this.
The way this hangs at the hem is unusual and asymmetric, which is my thing… why didn’t I make this sooner? Oh yeah, I only had Pinterest 4 months ago!
I modelled this for J long before taking these photos, he said it hangs too low on the back, so low that he could almost see chocolate creek! This got me thinking “there most be other ways to wear this dress”, so I tried a few things.
It can be worn quite a few ways but I’ll show you one other way, (J was getting bored of taking photos).
I left the hem unfinished for now, mainly due to laziness and not wanting to mess the dress up. If I don’t hem this one I’ll hem the next one… I promise.
Looking at it from this angle makes me want to sew more two toned garments using the same fabric, I really like the affect.
I like how the drape follows my body shape, I look all womanly and stuff! 😀
I have to mention this, it’s been bothering me as I’ve seen it in a few posts. My back is wonky as hell! What’s going on, is one shoulder blade bigger than the other? The hell?
Well it’s safe to say that I’ll be wearing this whenever I can and I’m making another one, adjusting the measurements as afore mentioned… in black.
