    Hi i saw your post on the imitation of life dress that you wanted to make.

    You probably want to start with a pattern something like this and alter the bust of the pattern so it is shaped more like this basically just to get the heart shape, i’d keep the darts in on the first dress to get the shape right. The turquoise sash looks like it’s between the heart shaped bodice and some twisted draped chiffon. i can’t tell if the draped chiffon goes into the side seams or not but doing so would hold the chiffon in place better. I don’t know if any of this information will help you with creating this dress, but if you still really want to make the dress i will try and put something more detailed together for you.

      Wow thank you so much for the information and your help. I truly TRULY apologize for responding so late. I don’t get on here often at all and I didn’t know that I had a post on my wall. Thank you again for the information!
