11.14.11 ~ 318/365

14 Nov

Finally finished that dress I keep mentioning! It had nearly 50 different pieces by the time you count the actual dress (look how many are on the top itself!), the facings and the lining. I also had to make the bodice twice because my sewing machine wasn’t cooperating– but, I’m really happy how it came out in the end. More importantly- it felt great to get back into sewing! A few years ago, I was cranking out a new outfit a week- now I’m lucky if I sit down at my machine for weeks at a time- and usually it’s just to mend something.
I’ll have more pictures of the dress on Friday after I wear it to my school’s Gala fundraiser.

It’s hard to see the detail in just one picture- here’s a picture of the criss-cross bodice:

And here’s a picture of the whole dress, so you can see the print on the bottom. I love the fabric- it’s so Brady Bunch!

    Nice work…cute dress, and a beautiful photo there by the fence. I like the complementary colors of the leaves and the subtle reflection on the fence.
