Pia party dress

Remember last post, I thought that I didn't need any party dresses. Well turns out I did need an other one. My sister and I are going out at new years eve and apparently a cocktail dress was required. The dress I made last year was pretty but not really a cocktail dress. So of course I made something else. I had some black pleated fabric in my stash and went out and bought some matching black silk. The pattern that I used is the Pia dress from la maison victor. To be honest when I first saw that dress in the magazine I was a bit pissed. I really liked the design but I felt that it was designed to sell there fabric collection because where else would you find a pleated fabric like the one they used? Turns out at the fabric sales in Rotselaar. And in black so that was even better because that made it easy to find a matching fabric. The dress is a fast make, not even a zip needed. The fit from La maison patterns is as always good, I made size 36. So that makes two items for the december theme for the social sew

main fabric: 12€ from the fabric sales
second fabric: silk 10€ from the fabric sales
pattern: Pia from La Maison Victor
