I wanted something special to wear today...just because it's Monday! I drafted the pattern out of one of my mom's old dresses from the 80's, but I added sleeves, changed it to a sweetheart neckline and gave scallops a try...it really didn't work out too well.

I'm still satisfied with it though!


Side view. You can't really tell from the picture, but I find that the sweetheart neckline is really loose and kind of puckers out. I think I need to put a dart in somewhere, but I'm not sure where.


Close up of the scallop. Uhm, so the problem with this is that I sewed it inside out. And then I gave up and was too lazy to unstitch everything so I just basted it and left it. It gives it that unfinished sort of look!...sort of.

I think it looks great! All of those "mistakes" are things that only you will ever notice. Smiley

This looks great. As for the neck line I would put the darts in at the corners...the part that goes from down to across.

Looks cute. I have had neckline issues like that before. put it on inside out and try pinning in the 2 corners, or even in the center. Check out some V neck tops, the pint sometimes has been turned and sewed down to keep it nice and sharp, know what I mean? It's hard to explain but I bet if you try messing around with some pins you will sort it out.

Love the unfinished looking scalloped edge. It's very cute, and looks great on you- I don't think anyone will pay any attention to the small mistakes you see, they'll be too busy admiring you in your lovely dress. Smiley

Oh thank you for all the positive comments! Hmm I'm just wondering if inserting another dart right by where there already are some will look funny, but I'll definitely give it a shot. Thanks again! Smiley
