Devon Alana Silk Bow Dress

Have you ever had an idea for a formal dress but just can't find it anywhere?! I gave up searching for the perfect dress and I decided to design my own! I found this beautiful royal blue silk fabric at Jo Ann fabrics & I knew it would be perfect for this one-shouldered bow maxi I dreamed up in my head. I am so pleased with how the dress turned out! I don't follow store-bought  patterns for my garments, so I don't have concrete directions, but here are some tips! *You can always email me with questions {}

-Start with the waist band & attach a pleated skirt
-Use an invisible zipper down the side rather than down the back
-Try the dress on multiple times while sewing
-Use quality fabric, it is worth it {link to fabric}

I designed this dress for my friend's wedding this weekend & it was absolutely perfect! The dress turned out exactly how I envisioned it (that doesn't always happen). I paired the dress with this gold clutch & always classic Steve Madden Stecy heels. I kept my jewelry simple since the dress makes such a statement.
