sooo im finally done my dress!! i drafted the [very vague] pattern myself at work on a slow day, and finally after a couple weeks of forgetting about it and too many stuck pins in my fingers, here is le finished product - and i am so proud of it!! i might even start wearing dresses now
sorry for being in your face, just the best way to show the detail. in this picture it's pinned to hold it up, i went back and sewed over the top line of sewing under the piping to reinforce the chest.
stitching on the bust
even stitches! and also showing off the contrast fabric.
my very first zipper!!!
i gathered this layer [90-some inches, maybe even 100] of fabric under the skirt [38"].. best way to gather? IN PARTS. try it, it's so much easier!
: ) please guys, criticism much appreciated! hope you enjoy
