Something old, something new..

I made a full length evening dress from Burda magazine 12/2008 two years ago..

The dress has been worn only once since then.. I found it recently and decided to wear it again but in a shorter, cocktail length version. That is the first time I’m refashioning my own sewn garment..

This dress was my first attempt of sewing evening wear. The pattern is quite good, I didn’t have problems with the fit and despite a sophisticated look, it’s quite easy to sew. (apart from the lace bit as it’s just a bit tricky material)

I like this dress and think it deserves being worn more than once.. I wore it again last week to The Nutcracker at London Coliseum.

Do you like my new Alice in Wonderland tights, by the way?

  1. Your dress is beautiful at both lengths but you should be able to get more wear from the cocktail version, so good decision on your part there. The lace is an interesting touch.
