Black Sequin Dress – Angelina Jolie Inspired

The view of the whole dress.

I made a black sequin dress inspired by Angelina Jolie.

The dress is made out of black sequin fabric. Because the sequin fabric is stretchy, I used matte jersey for the lining, so that it can stretch along with the sequin fabric. Invisible zipper as closure on the back.

I modified the neckline into sweetheart neckline. Gathered the pleats toward the right hand side of the body. Made the skirt floor-length with a slit. Rhinestone rose embellishment was added to add a little touch of glamour.

The dress has a boning foundation inside, with waist stay made out of wide black elastic, that way it will stay nice and secure. The boning has hook and eye closures.

Patterns were made by me using combination of draping and hand drafting.

    I love your elegant, draped long version of Angelina Jolie's dress. I'm sure she would like it as well. It certainly is a winner with me.
