“One is never overdressed or under-dressed with a BLACK DRESS.”
— Karl Lagerfield
Yes! Yes! Yes!
The first dress I ever stitched. That was a whole new experience for me… like BOOM!!!
‘Women who wear black lead colorful lives.’
Well that’s true…
I specially designed and stitched this Black dress just for my Convocation Day.
Vooo Hoo Hoo.. It felt like forever. I just prayed, prayed and prayed that somehow my fairy-godmother will come and magically finish this garment for me. XD
Here’s the story about my black dress
I wanted something elegant and classy. So I decided to go with a black dress in which you can never go wrong. Moreover, I didn’t want to have shiny or shimmery dress. So I went with trousers/pants fabric to give my dress a more formal look.
Oh it took me like forever to stitch this dress. Lot of things went wrong. (like…really.. a lot of things). I undid the sewed thread (because I made mistakes while sewing) more than actually sewing the dress.
(no kidding – actually became master of undoing the thread)
But what matters is “All’s well that ends well”.
I bought two fabrics – one for lining and another well that was the main fabric.
AND then I followed the traditional steps. Which involved from researching, to getting confused about everything, to pattern making and finally stitching the master piece .. VOLA!!!….
(And yah a lot of guidance from my mentor)
I kept it simple.
- Open (free!!!)
- Chain Watch
- black – drop shaped – studded around the border
- Sling Bag
- Classic black pencil heels
- Light Base
- Eye Make-up
- Red Lipstick (but not too bright)
- Light Base
Yah… well… that’s it…. and Yah a big and beautiful smile on my face (and a lot of self-confidence).
That was my look for the convocation day. However, I would like to show one more look for this dress.
Actually I worn this dress again after few months for some party. I carried more of a casual look by pairing this dress with…
- Denim Jacket
- White Shoes
(here’s the look)
