My birthday was a few weeks ago. We went to Bottega Louie in downtown LA, then to the lounge at the Bonaventure.
This is the dress I made. I used Simplicity 1873, made the back a scoop back, and added petal sleeves. The dress was really simple to make. I think Matt’s vest actually took longer!
I made Matt’s vest with navy brocade and a navy lining fabric. I used gold buttons, and I got him a gold tie in the fashion district.
