So I saw this gorgeous Thayer dress on Shopbop.com and wanted, wanted, wanted it. Unfortunately I do not have $200 to spend on a dress so I made a similar one. This was my first time working with satin and I have like 3 bolts of hunter green so I thought that would be the perfect color to practice on!  I think this is the first thing I have made that I will actually wear.  I think I am going to make another one in a print.  Let me know what you think!

What a lovely colour!  Is it basically a tube dress with an elasticized waste (plus the dramatic sash)?  I think I may need to make one...
