I hope you're all well. I'm actually in the final throes of my oral exams, but I couldn't help but sewing the dress for the graduation ceremony...
For the upper part of the dress, I took the Burda Styla pattern for dress 116-062011 (Sue, is it the same as you use? I noticed afterwards - I'm sorry, Ididn't mean to copy you!).
I changed the neckline slightly (at least I thought so), and ended up in having a quite plunging neckline, which is really unusual to wear for me. The skirt is also costumized and consists now of a gathered panel, nothing outstanding.
As announced, it's black xD.
I used tons of chiffon, the lining is satin. I like the neckline with the neckholder straps a lot, that's why I chose this particuliar pattern (^.^)
The dress doesn't fit Venus too well, so please ignore the fact that it looks rather crumpled.
It's closed with a zipper on the left side.
An idea how to style it. I thougt about red highlights, like the belt, red shoes and maybe a red alice band. What do you think?
I really, really tride to keep it simple, but I can't abandon the impression I'll be hopelessly overdressed - nevertheless.
