hey all! jesus, it's been long since i posted here. then again, it's also been very long since i've sewn.

more to the point, i made this dress over the past few days:





I LOVE IT SO MUCH. the super pretty AND comfortable fabrics, the darkness of it, flattering silhouette, POCKETS & practically flawless construction... i think it's some of my finest work. of course, the sensuality of the fabrics could heavily be clouding my judgment :p





the taffeta with that flowery trim was an excellent find in the fabric store last week. i pretty much created the whole dress around that trim. & it turned out fabulously.

also, i decided to try out this tutorial making thing, which can be viewed on my blog. it's very lengthy. it includes in-seam pockets, a blind zipper, flutter sleeves & yoke, among other things. i hope you find it useful!

thank you so much for looking! have a fantastic day/night!

That's some fine piece of sewing indeed. The details are awesome. I love anything lace anyways but combined with that floral detail...even better. I have seen something similar at my local fabric shop but haven't worked with it yet. Very pretty!!!!

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it.

Very pretty piece. I'm a sucker for the lacy yoke on tops or dresses! I'd just like to see it ironed, lol, I sound like such a snob, sorry!

Now, that trim is beautiful and the scallops definitely work with the pattern. I wouldn't say gothic lolita, I'd say elegant gothic aristocrat (EGA). Either label, this is a very well-made dress. I want one like this with a shorter skirt for myself.

Thanks for sharing the tutorial!

thank you!
haha, it's okay. the taffeta is actually a little crinkly on it's own, which i liked, but it photographed pretty badly.
& that was just the easiest way i could think of to describe it. i had never even heard of that other label.

tutorial was no problem, i'm glad you liked it (:

Ohh, taffeta. Dastardly fabric! Prefer the cheaper JoAnn satin taffeta for that reason.
