1960's gown

I just finished making an evening gown inspired by the 1960s Ives Saint Laurent Evening gown pattern. When I began to draft my pattern I decided not to make the armholes as deep. I also made my dress shorter. Drafting the pattern was easy, sewing it together was hard for me. I had a hard time sewing on the collard and the hem. I had difficulties because it's my first time sewing with sheer fabric. Overall, I think it turned out quite well.

The inspiration

Halter bodice with shirred neckline
