i drafted the pattern myself (close fitting bodice) and made the sleeves super slim, the body and neck extra long.
it's just a prototype, but i'm really happy with it.
you can wear the neck super tight (like in the pictures), on a looser built in set of buttons or totally down kind of like a cowl neck.

constructive critisism and ideas?

thats cool that you can change the turtle neck/cowl thing and i like the fabric too...you should add like a belt or an empire waist seam with a ribbon to kinda break it up a little. Keep up the good work!

I like the idea. It's also nifty how you made it adjustable, and I like the buttons Cheesy

This is definately meant in a positive way: That's bizarre.

I don't think I'd have the guts to pull it off, but I quite like it. I also really like mary_lou86's idea of the belt.

I also like the idea of a belt, maybe something in a pretty solid color that is high waisted. I also could not pull it off, but I would stare at someone in awe who could pull it off.  Cheesy


Guess who's back?

the belt is a fantastic idea!
i was kind of love/hate about the fabric, but that's why i put it into a prototype. the front looks puffy and not as fitted as i'd like.. i'll try and re do the darts and get it tighter.
i'm sort of ispired by 1900 sort of high necked superfitting stuff, just because i like the idea of modesty without being dowdy, an empire waist band would be perfect! i'm still just a newbie so i have a long way to go in learning how to manipulate fabric accuratly, but with constructive postive critisism and ideas like you dudes have given me, i have somewhere to start.
