Hi there,
here is the first dress I made (i only started recently) for my end of year ball. it is Newlook pattern 6401, which i think is beautiful, and has lots of variations as seen here: http://www.simplicitynewlook.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=134_138&products_id=7498
It was quite simple to make and quite a nice shape- though i think its the fabric that makes this dress good. its kinda a japanese pattern with white/silver blossom and blue spikey flowers. to accent this I chose an ice blue colour for the contrast sash  which ties round the open back and falls to about calf level. there is also a mini train which poofs when you walk which you cant really see in these pics! The front is very deep cut aswell. anyway here are a few photos! let me know what you think.






thanks,
 Smiley

Your dress looks great!  The cut is just perfect for your figure, and it fits fabulously - did you have to do many adjustments to get it to fit right?  I bet that fabric was pretty slippery to handle.  Wonderful work!
