This time it was because I didn't want the back wrap V-neck to dip so low, but, that didn't even end up happening due to poor planning on my part. Ahh in fact I think mine is lower. Fail.
The lace is from Etsy (obsessed with this shop!! Except watch out for shipping, it will kill you) and the lining is just the same fabric that I use for everything. (Seriously I've used it for like 6 different projects now, ha I love it! It's just from Joann's and it's always in stock.)
The bodice was drafted using this book (Principles of Flat Pattern Design by Nora Macdonald for those too lazy to click, hm wonder how I know people are like that? :) haha story of my life.) Anyways, the skirt is just Vogue 8899, just with the bottom slits sewn up.
I'm excited about the French seams in the bodice and sleeves. I usually just serge my seam allowances but Ami from Little Tailoress inspired me to put in a little more effort this time and I'm glad I did. Makes it look so much better!
I wanted to do an elasticized waist like the original one but I'm ridiculous and didn't take that into account when drafting the bodice. So of course it was way too small and I had to insert a side zipper instead. Oh well, at least it still fits.
Oh and here's the inspiration dress. $58.94 at Asos for those so inclined (random number because it's originally £38.00)
Also, last thing and then I'll go. Be Wise mag did a feature on me in their last issue and well, I'm super, super pumped about it. So sorry if annoying promotional stuff like this bothers anyone, but I had to mention it because guys, someone did a feature on me!!! haha that's super exciting stuff for me. It's on page 87
Have a great week everyone!
