I finished this dress today and I am so thrilled with it, I had to share it straight away.
The bodice is a princess line strapless bodice pattern and I drafted the sheer front and back yoke to add extra detail. The skirt is a slight A-line shape pleated in the front and back where the skirt hits the front and back bodice seams. I also made self binding for the top yoke from the red satin layered underneath the lace. The dress is also fully lined.
The dress is finished off with a black organza ribbon belt with little lace flowers cut from scraps. I also had scraps of the same lace in black from a dress I made earlier this year and cut flowers from that to add to the belt as well as two black velvet ribbon bows.
Now I just need an occasion to wear it. I am sure the upcoming holiday season will provide that.

A few more pictures here http://horrormaedchen.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/is-it-christmas-yet.html
I hope you like it as much as I do. Thanks for reading/looking.

Definitely something I will consider, though Im always a bit scared to buy custom made clothes online. My mother does a fair bit of sewing too, and it happens quite often that she needs to adjust the pattern or change things after I try it on. I have checked out your blog and your shop, and the stuff you are making is great! And reasonably priced too, no more than what Id pay in my favorite brick and mortar store  Smiley

This is stunning!  I tried to picture it in another color, but the red is perfect.
