I couldnt wait to post pics of this even though it inst done. I have to make the liner still. Overall this is a really easy pattern for a vogue, although I made some adjustments. It called for a liner plus a corset type foundation, which is basically a second bodice piece. I really didnt see the need for 3 layers of bodice fabric so I plan to put the boning onto the lining like I have with other dresses and Im sure it will be fine. Also you couldnt tell by the photo that the skirt is actually sewn on top of the bodice, so it calls for making a skirt facing just as if i made seperate pieces and thats not what I wanted. so I skipped that to and just sewed the bodice to the skirt. Sometimes I dont know who makes these patterns or the directions! LOL It also called for piping on the bodice side seams but I didnt want that look so I left it out. Im also going to do the piping along the top edge bodice seam.
I was dissapointed the skirt isnt as full as i hoped it would be as I intended this to be for VLV this year and wanted to do a full petticoat under but I think I will just to two layers of tulle attached to the bottom of the liner. I'll update this tomorrow when its all done. But overall I think it still looks 50s. What to you think? And please excuse my hair!!
