so i'm working on some wedding dress prototypes and i'm stumped on how to close this one. the pattern i based it off of is a vintage dress and they have the option of closing it with a couple buttons or with putting in a casing and draw string on the top hem and the waist and tieing it shut. i've thought about putting a zipper in but as you'll see, i don't know how well that would suit the part on the skirt.
here's the front to give you an idea of the style... the front of the skirt overlay is going to be cut upward into a half circle... i just haven't gotten to that part yet.
and another thing to consider, the dress form is a 36" bust i believe, but i cut the dress to fit my 33" friend. so it looks odd because i tried to see if i could pin it closed. didn't work
i had thoughts of just putting a button or tie at the top and letting the back be open since a bust that size can get away with no bra. but i think the slash goes too far down to keep it semi modest.....
