So i wanted to wear a pretty dress for when my one and only returned from work ((three weeks on, three weeks off if you've been stalking me
)). I'll be meeting him at the airport and I wanted him to get off the plane with all his other workmates and go, "See that girl? She's mine."
So I made this.
Pretty tight in the boobage area eh? prolly won't be wearing a bra with this one haha. Also the straps will get in the way as the 'straps/sleeves' are so far apart.
It's had many names since i purchased the fabric, originally it was the "i'm a retro housewife on her honeymoon in hawaii" then it went to the Island Fever dress, but I don't tan, so there goes that idea
This is the Tim dress
((also the prototype for what I'm thinking my wedding dress may look like))
Pattern made by me. So yeh, if you've seen my Voodoo Love
dress, you'll notice that I drafted them pretty identical. This one is a tighter fit as I wasn't really concentrating on the sideseams. I took the little strappy parts off the first pattern i made, so it was strapless, then drafted this strap shape from the parts I cut off. Pretty simple, but effective
I really love this dress. I made my own bias binding too, out of the scrappy pieces of fabric ((I had an issue with the armholes so I bound them))
Oh yeh, and because i wanted to look 'tropical' i took the photos near the only 'tropical' looking tree we have, completely forgetting that my iron is not a native tree dweller, so here is the obligatory iron shot ((Again, if you've been post stalking me, you'll realise there is a method to the madness))
It looks really tight doesn't it? It's just the fabric, I hate ironing ((I HATE THE IRON mostly)), I mean, it is tight on me, but not as sausagey as it makes me look there lol EDIT:: NEW pics
