ok so theres the 'winter ball' next week, and of course my bf only got round to telling me hed like me to go last night.. And owing to my busy schedule during the day i decided it wd be easiest to make a dress
silly i know.. anyways.
Ive got a really simple pattern basically of a strapless top, made in 5 pieces (bodice front&back, front of skirt, 2 back pieces of skirt) but ive got a couple of questions.. (im not used to working with patterns)
firstly Ive just realised that it has boning in the pattern, but i dont really fancy that, and my time limit doesnt really allow for it.. will there be any drastic consquences if i miss it out? (im not blessed with curves
secondly the pattern has a lining covering the interfacing bit of the bodice, is there any reason why i cant miss this out to save time? (if im only going to wear the dress once)
lastly i really want to do something along the lines of this dress www.simplicity.com/designFrame.cfm?designId=9259&design=5672
at the back (the sort of laced up bit) - is there any reason why i cant cut into the bodice on the pattern ive got and add this in?
Thanks in advance,
in awe of u all
