About a year ago I had to attend a party, but suddenly had nothing to wear. Doesn’t every girl have that problem? 😉 So I decided to make a new dress for the occasion. It was going to be really hot and sunny that day, so I didn’t want a super tight dress. This dress was the perfect solution! Super comfy, yet special enough because of the bow. And very easy to make. The only disadvantage is that you need quite a lot of fabric, because of the batwing sleeves and the bow sash.
For this dress I used red cotton cupro, which is a nice alternative to silk. It’s quite cheap, which always comes in handy for a project that needs 2,5 meters of fabric. Also, because it’s mostly cotton (opposed to the synthetic cupro you often find in fabric stores), it’s a good fabric choice for a nice summer dress. The only disadvantage is the fact that it creases rapidly, so it’s not a dress you take with you in a suitcase.
I like bows. A lot. Sometimes I think I’m the long lost sister of Viktor and Rolf, because just like them, I put bows on everything I make. You’ll notice when I upload more of my garments.
so I kept it simple and went for a nice bow sash with beveled ends:
But I’m sure I’m going to buy this perfume one day to give my outfits just that extra hint of V&R.
Bows make everything better. Don’t you agree?
