Vintage Cocktail Gown

This gown is another of my own designs. It is based on the 50's silhouette and many beautiful wedding dress bodices that I have seen over the years. The navy fabric is a slightly stiff silk impersonation and the lace an ordinary fabric from a discount store, but the overall effect is lovely.
The fabric and notions overall cost around $70.00. Couture evening wear was never simpler, or cheaper.

No-one would guess it was home made
