Teal Dress With Flounce: Festive Outfit Bonanza Look 4

Dress with flounce

Today I’ve reached the halfway point in my little mini-series leading up to Christmas. I do hope you don’t get sick of the sight of me by the time I get to my last post! Lol!

So, my dress with its asymmetric flounce is a copy of a dress from the Fall 2019 collection by Elie Saab and was my entry to the #designindecember challenge. I loved so many of the styles in that show and choosing just one to copy wasn’t easy at all. They looked as though they were made from a crepe-type fabric with really good weight and drape so when I saw this gorgeous teal green triple crepe from Clothspot I knew it would be perfect. 

The base design for this style is a simple long-sleeved sheath with two vertical fish eye darts at the back and front. I used OOP Vogue … as my starting point and besides adding a sleeve pattern from another similar Vogue design, I adapted the front pattern piece and drafted the large flounce myself. I originally wrote two blog posts outlining my whole process. You can read them here and here.

When I first styled this dress I totally emulated the runway styling and wore it with knee-high boots, but for a dressier, more festive look with a bit of sparkle, I added glittery heels (my ankle-strap ones are by Tamaris from Zalando online) and a necklace. I forgot to photograph my clutch bag though…oh well… 🙂

With its long sleeves and a fully-lined body, my dress is lovely and warm and perfect for a cold and frosty December night out. I’ll actually be wearing this exact outfit for a special date night dinner just before Christmas…can’t wait

I hope you’re up for more outfits…stay tuned for number 5 🙂

In the meantime, if you want to catch up on my other posts then here they are:- One, Two, Three.
