It’s not every day I have a good excuse to get dressed up; so when the chance presents itself, I take it! I’m really excited to share this New Years Eve dress with you guys. Though the pattern, Vogue V9251, is labeled as “very easy,” this piece took me quite a bit of time. It was well worth it though.
When we think of New Years attire, gold, silver and sequins are almost always at the forefront. I wanted to stick with this tradition, but present it a little differently this year. When I found this peachy/gold swimsuit fabric, I was so inspired by the color that I used the fabric for the dress. The wrap dress pattern isn’t typically meant for this kind of material, but I like to mix it up. I decided to pair it with some sequin appliques courtesy of some gorgeous fabric I found in their special occasion section.
I individually cut out different sequin sections of the fabric and used those sections on the shoulders of the dress, the metallic belt and even in my hair. I love having the fabric do the work for me.
I love the length of the dress and the weight of the material. It has a fluid-like appearance and the way it reflects light makes it almost ethereal.
Have you used this pattern? I’d love to know how it went for you!
