Oh...... i think we have all been at the " it not clicking part "  Grin

Been looking for other pictures of the dress and  this is what i figured out:

Cardigan part has to be with a lining .
Sew the neckine and the "keyhole part together >> turn

The cardigan part than has to be sewn into the side seams of the top-part of the dress . ( shoud als have a lining )

Oh and are you doing the back the same as the moth cloth dress?Huh
Pretty  awsome!
Think this one has to go on my to do list  Wink

Thanks for that! I think I get it now. I'm not sure about the back yet, but I think I'll make two dresses. If the first, with a normal back, turns out well, I'll make a similar one with the ModCloth back. Smiley

Just look at it as a strapless dress with a sweet heart neckline  and a sort of  cardigan over it .

You can even see in the picture that the top part ( cardigan ) is stitched over the Bottom part ( dress)

That's how I've been looking at it, but for some reason it just doesn't click when I sew it together. I've tried about three times and it just...it doesn't come out right. Maybe I'm being a perfectionist. I'll try it again. Thanks for your input! Smiley

I love the placement of the flowers! It looks professional. Wonderful job! (and I love those shoes! Where did you get them?)

Maybe like you sew a welt pocket. But then in the shape of the cut out.

So you sew a piece of fabric on top of your dress, right sides together.
You sew on the lines you want the cut out to look. Then cut out the fabric in the middle, as close to the stitching as possible. You should also snip fabric away around the curved lines.
Then push the piece you stitched on to the inside, wrong side of the dress. Press and that should be it?!

I hope it makes sense! If not, take a look on youtube for welt pockets. You only change the shape, the sewing it on, cutting and pushing it inside is the same.
(I'm Dutch, so it isn't easy to explain it in English)

Let me know it works! Good luck!  Smiley

Hmm. That might work! I don't know why I didn't think of that. Thank you so much for the input!!!

Hello everyone, and please help if you can! I love this style of dress, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make the peek-hole style (I don't even know what to call it!) on the chest. I have tried multiple times to make something similar, but I just can't seem to get it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

(The original dress is called "Big Band Singer" from ModCloth)

I need a skirt like this in my life. Would you mind sharing what you did to alter the J pattern to get that wonderful zig-zag look? Love love love it!
