Hi everyone, Here is a black dress I made recently :


I already made a first version of this dress here :
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=339575.msg4029549#msg4029549
It was the perfect thing to wear during hot summer days in italy. Unfortunately, it had a few problems :
- in order to get in and out, I made a very deep opening in the back... it was almost embarrassing !
- the skirt part was longer in the back than in the front (weird...)
- the fabric was ugly !

That's how came this dress.
The top is still based on the tutorial from appleshannon : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=339575.0
The back has now a corset inspired opening


The eyelets for "the corset" are buttonholes from a disliked clothing item (the big one in the following picture). Actually, I only used recycled material... even the elastic band comes from an old sleeping mask ! (I made this last thursday which is national holiday in france, there were no way to find an open fabric store, it definetely pushed me to be "creative").  Grin


Comments and critics are welcomed. Wish you a pleasant sunday Smiley

I think it's just beautiful. Gorgeous! Your very talented. I always wanted to learn to sew. I never have and regret it. I do, however, do quilling, and I love it. It's a beautiful art form. But, I do envy those who can sew as beautiful as you.
