Here is my entry.

 It has a velvet bodice with mesh strip insertions and satin skirt with a thigh high split.  Here is the back

I started with this pattern

but had to alter the neckline as it wasn't sitting right so I changed it to a halter neck with bias binding ties.
I am pretty happy with how it turned out but it will be a while before I do anything with velvet again as it moves so much,
thanks for checking it out

Very pretty! Like the contrasting binding you used for the bodice. Your version is much more appealing and dramatic. Smiley

Wonderful job! I love those neat, cutting lines. I also commend you for daring to work with velvet! Was there lint everywhere after you cut it?

It looks like a latin dance dress you'd see at a ballroom competition.  Does the bodice have side darts?  If it wasn't velvet I'd think it was bias cut.

I love that you made the pattern your own and solved fitting issues---sewing for yourself is the greatest!

I also hate working with velvets...so slippery!  Looks like you will have a lovely black dress for many fun events!

thank you, I only attempted this because the technique was in a recent threads magazine and I could follow it step by step.  And yes there was lint everywhere after!
