How To Make a Beyonce Inspired Party Dress

how to sew a dress

The Holiday season is around the corner and anything festive is synonymous with dresses in my opinion. When I spotted the Nicole Miller dress worn by Beyonce I loved how it can be worn both in a chic way and be dressed down at the same time or be worn at work.

Although it’s a simple grey dress what makes it pop are the trimmings added to the finishing look. And the fact that is was worn by Beyonce otherwise nobody would be talking about it lol

Enjoy this DIY dress tutorial!

What you’ll need:
– 1 yards/meter of wool crochet fabric (shop it here or at Metro Textiles NYC)

I used Rhinestone Embellished trimmings, Jumbo Ric Rac Orange, 1/2 Shell Knit trim)
– Zippers (shop it here)
– thread
– fabric scissors
– pins
