Advice needed

Hi Ladies, this is my first post on the new We Sew Retro!!!
I need your advice: I’m thinking about making a fast and easy dress for the upcoming Sylvester and I own the pattern in the picture. Do you think I might make something nice out of it as evening dress? What kind of fabric would you use?
I made 6 dresses out of this pattern and was very happy with them, but they were all summer dresses, so I’m not sure to get the same result for an elegant dress!

Thanks a lot for your help!!! Kisses from Sardinia!




Hi Ladies!
I’m so proud to show you my last project!
Come and check my blog! I’d like to read what you think!!!

Hi there! I’m a follower of Sew Retro for some months now.
I’m an Italian woman, living in Sardinia, an island in the Mediterranean Sea.
I love hand-made stuff! Since I always wanted to sew my own clothes, last month I took the courage and bought my first vintage pattern: Simplicity 3522.
I must say it was not that difficult!!!…the problem was that I didn’t have a serger! But then my lovely husband fixed an one for me!!
I’ve starded my own blog, Babajaga, so come and visit!!
