This is a cocktail dress I made from a vintage pattern to wear to my office christmas party. Its a sheer fabric over duchess satin, and it was my first time doing an overlay like that. I'm quite pleased with it!

Wow. I pretty much love this dress. I think it looks amazing. Did you get a lot of compliments on it at your party?

A lot of my coworkers know I sew, so there was a lot of "are you making your dress?" in advance, but I think I acquitted myself well. Plus, its a really comfortable dress, which allowed me to actually EAT.

Great dress! I really like the color and the pattern on it too! What pattern did you used, if any?

Your dress is gorgeous!  That fabric was a perfect choice for the pattern.  I'm jealous!
