Finished Mint Dress

I finished it over a month ago! Finally got around to taking pictures. Here are all the posts about this dress.

A couple more WIP/detail shots:

It isn’t perfect, but after I finally wore it for the first time last weekend, I loved it! I guess sometimes I just need to stop looking at all the details that aren’t perfect and enjoy the dress as a whole :)

This is the first “complicated” dress I’ve ever drafted, and I’m quite happy with it.  Although next time I don’t think I’ll make a scalloped edge with the 2/3 circle skirt, they just don’t show that well… and that it’s hard to tie the back nicely without help! Also, the skirt is a tiny bit too small, and it makes the zipper look weird. Maybe a hook and eye can fix that.

I also finished the fur shrug today, I’ll post pictures tomorrow.

  1. Oh it is so pretty! I love the color – minty and fresh! Looks awfully beautiful with your shoes and lovely gold belt. I love how you’ve also combined the scallops on the hem with the scallop style bodice, it really balances out quite wonderfully. Just lovely!

  3. Hi, just found your blog from Pinterest, followed it to burdastyle and to your blue sheath dress. Your sewing is amazing, I can’t wait to see what’s next. And this mint number is devine, really looks great with the gold belt. You model your clothes so well!!
