Return of the Golden Hour

As it's fashion week (well, New York fashion week was over the weekend, but now it's London's week right?) I thought I'd show you all my new Marc Jacobs dress. Well alright, I made it myself, but the fabric, according to Mood Fabrics online where I bought it, it was a Marc Jacobs fabric. So this is probably as close as I'll ever get to having a Marc Jacobs dress, which is fine, as I doubt he usually bases his designs on late 1940's dresses...

This fabric is a rayon that feels almost like an acetate taffeta, really cool and crisp to the touch. Luckily, though it feels like it would be slippery to sew with, it actually behaved really nicely and I was even able to serge the seams and didn't have to use seam binding which was great as I impatiently wanted this dress to be done! I have fall projects I want to start on ;) I didn't need to line the dress either despite it being slightly sheer where the white parts of the print are and just wore it with a white slip here.

I paired the dress with some black accessories, silver shoes, and some clear rhinestone jewelry. I think this look would be great for dinner or cocktails in the summertime, which of course is just ending, but there is always next year.

I'm afraid I'm knackered tonight, as the Brit's would say, so I'll close here and go off to make dinner. I hope you all had a good week, happy Friday!

Dress: Made by me
Shoes: Zara
Jewelry & Clutch: Vintage


  1. Oh my, what a gorgeous dress. For my taste, this could be one of your nicest ever - I just love the pattern. And I'm with you - I'd far prefer this to a real Marc Jacobs' dress! Just beautiful. Kx

    1. Thank you! The print was too good to pass up, I get so distracted on Mood Fabrics website!

  2. You're right, a gorgeous dress for dinner or cocktails. And the fabric looks lovely.

  3. This is a stunning going out dress. Great fabric find!

  4. I simply adore the neckline on this dress! And love that you paired the clips with it!


    1. Thank you Janey! I love dress clips so I am trying to make more dresses with good necklines to wear them with.
