So I had a Christmas do to go to, it was with one of my fitness groups, and it was an all day event. The specs for what to wear were: present your best self and it has to be white or silver or a combo of the two. At first I was a bit hesitant to make something for this and was quite happy to buy an outfit, but then I found the perfect fabric, from Minerva crafts.com. Its a silver Jacquard and its gorgeous. I just knew I had to make something out of it.
I decided to make a cocowawa marshmallow dress, and include the pockets for a change. Since the first couple of these dresses I’ve made, I’ve not bothered to include the pockets. But this time I felt they would be appropriate.
So I made it, decided I wasn’t happy with it, and made another dress. This time I made a short Trapeze dress. Pretty much thought I would be wearing that, then tried them both on again, and decided I would be wearing the Marshmallow.
First up is the Trapeze.
I don’t know it just felt that bit too short. I’m happy to wear it as a tunic with jeans.
Next up the Marshmallow
You can see the detail in the fabric quite well here.
It is super shiny, and I was quite excited to wear it. It felt like a special occasion dress to me. I know its not everyones cup of tea, but it is my style and thats that!
I wore it with a gorgeous silver sparkly headband, and silver sandals. And then changed into silver glitter Converse when my feet got tired.
I just love the shine on this fabric, its like real silver! It is in my mind the ultimate party dress…
Perfect dress for a Christmas Do!
The material looks tricky to sew with, but worth it.
Thanks Gillian, it actually wasn’t too bad to sew with but a little stubborn to iron!
