Hi again, i just finished this dress, it was inspired by Betty Draper, if you don’t know who she is go watch Mad Men, cause they have the best clothes on that show, amazing! But anyway when i came across this brocade fabric it just said ”Betty” to me i’m really happy with the result.

the halter strap is removable!

THe question needs to be asked: will you be wearing authentic under-garments with this dress so you can wiggle properly?

Holy cow! That is absolutely stunning! Kudos on your pattern matching skills around the centre back, too!

This is a perfect storm of the right fabric, the right pattern, and the right embellishments!

Way to go!
