How to be Elegant without Breaking the Bank: Outfit #3 - I WANT THAT WHOLE LOOK

How to be Elegant without Breaking the Bank: Outfit #3



Hello wonderful people!
We all know that sometimes when you get that invite to a special occasion the first thing that usually comes to your mind is, "What am I going to wear?" I decided to make a special occasion dress for myself that I will pull out of my closet for when such a moment comes. It is probably one of my most favorite dresses that I have ever made for myself. It took longer than the rest because I really put more thought into the design and details this time round. It had more pattern pieces as well which meant more cutting and sewing for me. However it was so worth it. I love it so much that I hung it in a special corner in my closet all by itself, lol.  It is dress I will definitely be wearing only to very special occasions such as weddings, dress up parties etc.
For me, fit is very important, so when I create things for myself or clients it is something that I strive to execute very well in the final product.  Here is the dress. Enjoy!

The Process
