Khaki Taffeta and Net Evening Dress - work in progress


i love this dress!

initially i wasn't sure how the design would turn out with khaki coloured taffeta and matching soft net. would it look too casual?

but i needn't have worried.
it looks sooooooooooo classy.

now i just need to finish the sleeves and hem.
and iron the dress!



style & sewing notes:

1. dress is fully underlined and lined

2. i used a double layer of net

3. i seldom like to include darts on a dress unless it is part of the design. so i have used a princess cut, although an alternative would be to transfer the bust dart to the armhole and the waist dart to the sides. but the princess line does a good job of bust & waist shaping and the two visible seams are slimming.
