I'm pretty happy with the result and will make this dress in real fabric. I am debating a blue-gray tropical wool or a crisp gingham. Maybe I will make both!
Lee says I should wear this to work tomorrow, or try selling it some hipster. It's made from old bedsheets and odds and ends. Is this really what hipsters wear?
Now, for my horrible, low contrast, indoor lighting at night photos...
|Muslin front. I'm especially happy about how well the bust fits. The waist is in the right place.|
|From the side.|
|From the back. The peplum has a pleat at the center seam and the neckline is high in the back. The zipper is poochy not because of the back bodice pieces but because I set it in slightly crooked. This isn't sewing perfection, it's a muslin, people!|
|You can see the high backed neckline here as well.|
