the fabric is BEAUTIFUL but evil double sided velvet. so warm and lush but so awful to sew lol.

Our notes: Totally worth the pain of sewing evil fabric, this dress is stunning. THere are some great tips for dealing with fabric from the dark side in this thread.

We always tell eachother, "I will love you as long as the moon is in the sky." So the space themed fabric seemed appropriate. 🥰

Our notes: This dress (and the thoughtfulness behind the fabric selections) is just so sweet! I love the playful choices and the way to OP has combined patterns to make an excellent statement garment.
