|Notes||I turned 30 this year and wanted to have a special celebration. As it is 2020 and I left my 20ies, I thought it was time for a Gatsby party with Charleston music and nice dresses.
First of all I must say that this pattern was clearly a bit too difficult for my skills. I started to make it with rayon first but soon realized that I just couldn't work with this fabric and so I had to start again with plain cotton popeline. I clearly would not recommend cotton fabric though, as my dress turned out a bit stiff and did not fall nicely and swinging... and then there are of course some little flaws due to my being a bit overchallenged... please don't look too closely!
Yet, I decided to still show this dress to you as I am quite proud of my ideas for making it somewhat wearable at my party. First of all, I added this nice fringe to make the dress swing and move a bit more when dancing. Second, I added as much glitter as I could to distract from the rather boring basic dress. I needed several weeks for the embroidery and I think it turned out really nice! So maybe it can still inspire some here...
Please excuse the wrinkles, I had been sitting and dancing in it all night...
