Free Pattern with Dress Tutorial The Littlest Studio Uncategorized Great neckline Alert.

Great neckline Alert.

For a multitude of reasons (including my propensity to pull unintentional pratfalls of physical-comedienne proportions and an unfortunate tendency to rest my clasped hands on top of my head for no good reason) I just don’t do strapless (or even spaghetti straps). This can be a hardship at holiday-party-dress time, when it seems as if there’s a law against having a lot more than three square inches of fabric above your sternum.

This dress steps forward brilliantly to beat all those strapless numbers at their own game. It’s freaking gorgeous, isn’t it? I love the hammered-metal color and the absolutely sensational neckline. Strapless can look too girly-debutante, and spaghetti straps too casual; this dress is absolutely neither. I don’t know if this particular kind of neckline has a name, but, if not, I propose “empress”. (There’s nothing “sweetheart” about this one.)

The only bad news is that this dress is nearly $800 … that’s, well, a LOT. click on the image to check out the Elizabeth Charles online boutique, where it’s being sold.

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this neckline on at least one of the umpty-billion vintage patterns I have. and I have some really, really great green satin … now all I need is a good excuse to wear it! thank goodness for holiday parties.
