A black tie affair

A couple weeks ago I started working on a special rush order for Becky and her husband who were attending a black tie ball.

Late nights and many podcasts later, Becky’s dress was ready to go (on time!).

Working with Becky, we decided on a black-on-black fitted, knee length dress. For fabric, we landed on a black cotton twill with a hint of stretch and a dash of shine. I then trimmed the collar and arm holes with a soft, matte black leather. The bodice is lined in a white satiny fabric that has small red polka dots on it. For her husband, I made a bow tie in the same black cotton twill material and trimmed the edges with leather.
