For this post, I will be sharing the outcome of a recent DIY project of mine. It is wedding season this time of year, so I thought it’d be perfect to make a dress that could be possibly worn to a wedding.
I used three fabrics for this dress. Neoprene, cotton and organza. I used the floral cotton fabric for the upper half of the dress and added white lightweight organza on the sleeves. As for the bottom half, I used black neoprene fabric. This is a stable and thick fabric that doesn’t require lining underneath.
I worked from a size 10 pattern block and adapted it to suit my dress design. As for the sleeves, I decided to make the infamous cold shoulder sleeve.
To photograph this look, I dragged my photographer and now fiance’ to the beautiful Old Royal Naval in Greenwich.
