(Tina and I, both dresses made by me. My dress detailed in my last post)
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dress! As I mentioned in my earlier post this is Simplicity 3503. The style and fabric print/colors were perfect for the occasion. Making a dress for her big celebration was such an honor and I'm so delighted it turned out perfectly. I LOVE sewing for others---it allows me to contribute to their special moments in a special way. She was an awesome muse and we were able to put our ideas together to decide on a style that would flatter her figure and give her just the amount of sexiness she was going for. Plus she's an excellent Salsa dancer and with so much dancing to do a the party, the dress had to be as comfortable as it was cute. I think this turned out GREAT!!! What do you think?
Also, I detailed the pattern adjustment and changes I made to her dress in an earlier post HERE.
Here's a few more parting pics.....

The party was a success and I'm super excited that Tina's dress turned out well! It was great to make a dress fitting for someone who is both beautiful on the inside and outside:) Sigh....I love it when a great sewing plan/project comes together:)
