This dress was a challenge as I needed to stay true to me but also be somewhat risque. Therefore the completely lined bodice and unlined skirt. Some changes were made as I had to modify parts to put all the pieces together. I wish I had made the hostess apron but it was my grandmother’s and she made it.

 

The basis of the pattern was Simplicity 3823.

One of few not in black

Love not being in black

Invited for the chairman of the board’s dinner.  Had about 3 weeks to find a dress.  Decided to go retro.  Loved my dress.  Almost everyone else was wearing formal black but I loved my print and the dress.  Amazing to dance in.
