I recently completed this party dress for a wedding I was going to at the weekend. I had a great time, the bride looked beautiful, the food was amazing and got lots of compliments so it was pretty successful all round. I used Simplicity 2444, a project runway pattern which I am now in love with and taffeta for the main dress, even though lots of people said it would be too '80's.
Yes that is frost in the grass brrr!
I thought it would look good with a contrasting bow and I shortened the skirt as they are always too long on me.
I also love that you can tie the bow at the back or wrap it round like a sash to make the dress look different. I am all about the convertible!
