I started sewing about 6 weeks ago, and I'm in love! This is the first dress that I've made that could be wearable. I may take the waist in so that it is more fitted.
I altered a prom dress pattern for the bodice, then I made up the skirt, and the straps. The fabric was on sale at Joann's. It is quite dingy looking, as it is intended to be used for chef wear. I used a metal zipper. I got this idea from the cover of In Style magazine, plus I wanted to keep with the non traditional dress fabric theme. The button on the front is a cover for the little snip I made while trimming seams... oops. At that point I didn't want to replace the front panel. I may switch out the button for something more interesting. Please excuse my blindingly white skin, and my bra haning out...
Thanks for looking!
