hello all, Ive been a lurker for ages and decided to creep out of the darkness and show you my little pink dress that i made for my GCSE drama exam
it was quite a palava as it was the first dress Ive ever made and i had to do it in like 3 days. lets just say it was a steep learning curve for me [ Ive only ever made the odd skirt or PJ's ] and it didn't help that i chose a very slippery fabric.
anywhoo, its a vogue pattern which i shortened to a mini dress:
here are some pictorals (sorry they're not that great)
the pleats fell kinda funny when it was on her, on on the front ones (which i only found out the day of performance as she was never avaliable for fittings!) so i hand sewed them down. it was also the first time Ive put a zip in, and the fabric was soo slippery and so that didn't turn out well at all, but hopefully the examiner didn't notice that when it was on stage!
I'm not totally pleased with it, but you learn from your mistakes eh!?
thanks for looking
