I have a ball for the end of the Uni dancing year and am thinking about making a dress for it, here are some options that I have thought about:
There are some fantastic shiny fabrics on Tia Knight (I don’t shop there too much honestly!) which would make some fantastic dresses.
Dress 1 would make a lovely formal dress, in one of the velvets possibly adding some beaded/diamantéd embellishment across the shoulders. (This is a plus sized pattern so would need to be taken in a little bit)
Option 2 has been on my radar since I first saw it but I think it is not quite formal enough for this setting. I am still on the look out for a fabric that will do this justice, and wouldn’t wrinkle so I can pull it out of my sailing bag and look a bit formal… I think the shiny red might be a good choice for this.
I love the third dress but I’m not sure that it would work for this event as it is too much like a competition dress that one of the other dancers has, but is still on my wish list. Possibly with the white or black blue fabric.
Or Possibly I might go for a Jumpsuit one of these two would be a good choice, but they do take up a lot of fabric, and would require a lot more fitting.
What do you think? Any suggestions on other patterns I might try?
