So I tried making this dress a while back, but originally it had a boat neckline and a french dart for shaping.  Which actually didn't really do much shaping at all...so I renovated the pattern I made and changed it to a princess seamed scoop neck.  I really like how the fit turned out.  I also really like the little pleats, on the other side is a silvery material.  I'm not sure what to do for the back closure, I was hoping to find some really cool button.  Any feedback? Smiley

Wow I love it! The open back, the pleats, the fit from the front, the color... This is a pattern, you say? If it's not your own, I'd love to know which one Smiley

Sexy! I think pearl buttons at the top would be so cute. Like, sweet proper pearls, looooow sexy back. Great job!

I like the little back part of the skirt. What pattern did you use?

Thank you everyone for such nice comments! Smiley

As for the pattern, I draped it all on my form, the best I could do is take a picture of what my pattern pieces looked like Tongue
