It's really a lovely pattern. Looking at the dress, the front panel looks gathered rather than pleated, but they managed to keep the pleats at the waist. Does your pattern do that too? And will you keep the bubbling effect at the hem?
Don't worry too much about the straps. They are very thin and do not need a lot of fabric- and you can use a ribbon instead- and they are easy to add at the last minute if you feel that strapless dresses are unreliable!
It's really pretty though and so close to the dress you want!! I might buy that pattern too! Cheesy

I believe they are gathered but I will probably make things easier on myself and use my ruffler foot. Yes, it appears to be gathered along the waist as well on the pattern. I can't wait till this weekend when I can get started on it! I think I will shorten it and not add the bubbling on bottom. I'm only 4'11" so the original bottom wouldn't look right on me I think.

yes, I heart anthro and so I heart this thread! I have it bookmarked and try to give it a periodic bump when I've got some anthro-inspired or anthro-copied piece to share.

That's a lovely dress. If it were me, I'd keep the straps, but that's only because I haven't got the chest to keep anything strapless UP, especially if it's got a lot of weight at the bottom from a full gathered skirt. One twirl and *fwoop!* down it'd go! =)

What type of fabric are you using? I saw the original is a silk voile. I *swoon* for printed silk voile (and keep trying to find some that I like for sale)!

Finally started another anthro-inspired project yesterday. It's a tunic from last summer's collection (meant to do it last summer but ran out of time, but I still have the fabric):


We'll see how it turns out...

hey, so there are pics of what I've been working on on my blogspot (craft) blog. Would any of you mind having a gander and giving me your opinions? I'm thinking I might do a bit more floral embroidery (in muted blues and taupes), under the bustline, just so it's a really "lush" kind of floral look, but also to kind of mellow the palette - it feels a bit "bright" right now.

oh yes, and the poppy is from anthro drapery in fall 2004

thanks!

thanks, Crafty_Witch! Do you think I should stop now? or ... maybe... just a *little* more =) (I have trouble saying no to needle and thread. more is always better, right?)

And I fixed my comments settings, so now anyone can comment. And I find out about it. whoops, forgot to do that a while ago. =)

it's hard to say, I think it looks great the way it is, but more could also be nice! maybe it's an excuse to find another cheap top and experiment?
