Pretty Print & Pattern
I made this dress for a special event which is why I chose a more formal looking fabric with a rich print. In my opinion I think it's a great semi-formal dress for the Easter season, a time when everyone wants to look their best. To make this dress, I drafted the pattern from an old dress I had in my closet that was too short for me and I lengthened the hem to the appropriate length for my body. It is a classic silhouette and I hand sewed gold embroidery on the dress to create little cap sleeves on the shoulders.
