Coctail chakra

George Chakra Fall 2010 1

Summer brides attention! Buy a vintage pencil dress and loads of tulle (stiff organza is also good) and some wide satin ribbon. Sew the tulle into a skirt (full circle as pattern). Add satin ribbon to waist and . Tie it on top of the pencil dress waist, just below bust. Instant update to an old coctail dress.

This dress is formed from a circular piece wrapped around the body. Pinning and sewing on the gathered tulle and lace will take ages though, but totaly worth the trouble..

Also adding layers around the shoulders looks pretty sassy.

Phasellus facilisis convallis metus, ut imperdiet augue auctor nec. Duis at velit id augue lobortis porta. Sed varius, enim accumsan aliquam tincidunt, tortor urna vulputate quam, eget finibus urna est in augue.


  1. Just want to add, anyone with access to a ruffler foot for a sewing machine would make super quick work of the gathering for the second dress. You're still on your own for the placing and pinning though!

  2. That wine coloured ball gown is divine. And I like the idea of the tulle petticoat as an overskirt, a new idea for a cocktail dress!
