We went to a wedding in North Carolina back in August. I made a dress to wear but, in true Sewing Is Hard tradition, I neglected to take any photos of the dress at the event, except for this one.
I used Simplicity 6220. It went together lickety-split.
I chose a thick satin brocade from the sash.
It ravels pretty badly but I serged each and every one of the seams.
I wasn't sure about the reverse darts in front,
sometimes they can make me look a little pregnant.
Once all was said and done, though, I fell in love with this dress.
|I swear the zipper isn't crooked! I'm just standing funny, as usual.|
The best part is that, somehow, I have a ton of fabric left over. What shall I make?
My heart is whispering, "satin cigarette pants" but my head doesn't think we have anywhere fancy enough to wear them. Still, I think my heart is on the right track.
SATIN CIGARETTE PANTS! Right?
