 I fell in love with this sequin fabric I spotted when walking through the fabric store over a year ago...I loved it so much, that I decided I just had to create something with it.   I immediately thought cocktail I purchasied a yard and a half.  

So I opted for a halter neck with a fun keyhole back opening.  After I completed it, I thought a long overskirt could be a fun addition to give two different looks. 
The dress is fully lined, and has an invisible zipper in the skirt and 3 buttons with loops at the back neckline.     I strategically placed the pattern pieces so that the ombre was highlighted.  I was thrilled when I found a grey chiffon that was a great match to the darkest of the grey at the bottom of the dress! 
Grey colors can be so difficult to match due to the blue or green undertones.  That goes for grey paint too!    I draped the overskirt on my dress form, so there really isn't a pattern for it.  I tend to do things like that when I'm creating a custom project.  I'm really pleased with how this turned out.  I have no idea when my daughter will ever wear it, so I'll just add it to the many, many items I've created over the years just because I had an idea or found a special fabric that I just had to work with.  I literally have a closet full of these "one off" items!
