Hi all!

I bought me some dark blue stretch fabric to make me a jacket.
But I got inspired by "Project Catwalk" (the Dutch version of Project Runway) to create a dress.

I made the pattern all by myself, using my mannequin (googled that, so not sure it is right).

The dress is a wrap version, quite simple. I only used dark blue ribbon to make it more feminine (I think).

So here are the pictures:


(The blouse underneath, is a bought one, but tailored by me)

And the back:


It is hard to see, but I added two darts on the back and a little split in the bottom part.


Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

What a pretty dress!  I love both the color and the style. 
I would wear that to work - with a little cami and cardigan in the summer and with the blouse in the winter.

Thanks!

I'm not wearing to work a lot, I work with children and feel a bit overdressed when I do wear it to school!
But I still think it is pretty  Smiley

This is great, Wendie! I love that you made your own pattern and it still came out looking so structured!

PS. "mannequin" works, or dressform!

Congratulations! That's a very stylish garment & I love the ribbon trim. It's the perfect garment for dressing up for going out - white shirt & pearls with heels, or dressing down for work - perhaps a red plaid or checked shirt with coloured tights & boots.

Thanks so much!!  Cheesy

Well a wrap dress isn't very difficult! I made several before with a pattern, so I did have an idea. After cutting, I just wrapped it inside out on the mannequin so I could pin it where needed. I'm not very "curved", which makes it less complicated to create a dress!  Wink And a having a mannequin helps too!
And thanks MareMare for the translation, sometimes I'm not sure if it's right!

I like your idea of wearing this with a plaid shirt and COLOURED tights! Why didn't I think of that? Thanks for the tip!!  Cheesy
