2 Masquerade Ball Gowns Revealed.....

Ha, the November 16 "Birthday" Masquerade Ball has come and gone and I'm finally getting around to doing a post! Someone tell me where has the time gone???? I don't want to even think of how near the end of the year we are!!!

Anyhow here are the 2 gowns I made for me and my friend, Ms. S's Masquerade themed birthday party. I ESPECIALLY loved the way Ms.S's gown turned out especially since she was the Birthday Girl. The fit, style and fabrication of the dress were spot on and I'm delighted to report that she loved it! And I absolutely LOVED making it!

Ms. S's gown is Vogue 8358 and consists of 2 layers of fabric which I'll reveal in my review post. I also think for "kick's and giggles" that I'll try remaking the dress on my half-scale dressfrom (mini form version) so you can get a better view of the dress and especially since I don't have any other good quality photos to show you at the moment. The fabric used for this dress was absolutely stunning, especially if you saw it in person!!! Also, for some reason I can't remember which pattern I used for mine. Hopefully I'll remember the next time I post. Ok, more on these a little later.......:)


  1. You both look stunning! Well done!

  2. OOH, THAT one. This dress does come out great, but that side dart/strap seam bulk took a lot of doing/undoing for me. Does anyone make this dress for themselves, or is it always for someone else?. Those dresses look great on them, and that's how it's supposed to end!

  3. Great job! The dresses came out beautiful!
    I love V8358! I made that dress a few years ago for a an awards ceremony that I went to. I had to do some adjustments on the dart/strap too.

  4. Ms S looks so fabulous in her lace gown! You can see how happy she is for sure.

  5. thus note that designers you wish and also the vogue numbers - this may assist you notice similar designs which will be cheaper than the precise dress you would like.
