Fancy Party Dress

This is my first attempt at designing my own dress. It was a long process but I had tons of fun! I used The Party Dress by Simon Henry as a reference to make my pattern. It was super helpful!

The top took the most time. A lot of adjustments were needed to make it fit perfectly.

The back is adorable! It was a bit tedious but much easier than adding a zipper :)
 Adding the skirt! It looked pretty rough at this point...I wasn't sure it was ever going to be a dress. Adding tulle under the skirt was one of the most obnoxious things I've ever done.

The finished product! It fits my dress form, let's see if it fits me...

Yay! It's not perfect, but it fits! :) Currently planning my next design...
