I mentioned two weeks ago that I was invited to a wedding for my boyfriend's cousin, which was this past weekend. Usually I plan to make outfits and just don't have the time to finish (really I procrastinate too much and rush things at the very end and pieces wind up not fitting). But I made it a point to start early and actually finished with time to spare!
You can see my original sketch here.
My original sketch had the Georgette on top, but I didn't feel like trying to figure out how to do that, so I stayed with the sweetheart neckline until trying it on and realizing it would be more comfortable with a strap. Other than that, the dress stayed pretty true to the sketch.
This is the first dress pattern I've made, the first time using these fabrics and the first zipper I put in that isn't crooked! The solids are peach skin and the floral is georgette (on sale right now for $3.99/yard), all from JoAnn's. I bought way more than necessary, just in case, and the total came out to $54.33 for the fabric.
And just for fun: 5 years ago, I was making my prom dress around this time (this was taken an hour before we were taking prom photos…still sewing).
This was my workspace last week:
Some thing's don't change much.
