LaLove Designs One-Shoulder Maxi Dress

IMG_2960How do you make Grecian modern? Sheer with stretch gold lame underneath was my method, and I’m really pleased with the result. My original intention was to make a bustier jumpsuit out of the silver fabric I used for the wrap, but I ran out of time, so I tried the gold knit I had for making my daughters’ gymnastics leotards and loved the effect! I even used it to make visible straps for the bustier underneath and a belt.

IMG_2958This fabric would lend itself well to so many styles, and I have 2 or 3 yards left over, so I’m excited to play with it and come up with something different. I would love to see this draped asymmetrically, or in a shorter, funkier cocktail style dress.
