The original dress.
Me wearing the dress at EFY
I followed this pattern and this is how it turned out:
It looks better on the hanger.
It still needs some work/tailoring but otherwise it's done. I'm not totally happy with the way it looks on me but in general I think it looks alright. I am happy with the length and the way the sleeves look. The neckline is higher than I was expecting so I'm going to do some adjusting there which should also fix the bubble that's going on. I need more definition in the waist but I'm not sure how I'm going to do that. I'm thinking of some sort of a white band or a scarf that ties to cinch it in at the waist. A scarf would be easier but I'm not sure how it would look. The skirt has too much volume so I'm going to take it in at the sides to fix that.
So what do you think? Any suggestions? Kim?
