    Thank you – the sash wasn’t part of the pattern, but I thought the dress really needed the break in the middle.

    The hem definitely needs a proper pressing, but my goodness it takes ages to press so much fabric!
    I do have a tulle petticoat, I should wear it with this next time.

    Thanks. It was daunting to resize, but it’s daunting every time trying a new technique or fabric.

    I LOVE the origami/woven/cut out yoke! Great song name inspiration, too.

    I can’t entirely claim this as a ‘new’ project, given the only things I did on it in the last five years were to sew the hem and the red sash. I’d made all the rest of it years ago, but wasn’t comp…

    So interesting to read about you, and all your clothes are gorgeous, especially the back on that blue peplum top.

    I worry that lining it might mess up how it drapes. I should make myself a slip to wear underneath, though.

    This dress was my first experience of resizing a pattern. I found this pattern at an op shop (charity shop/thrift store) for $3 and I loved the unusual cut of the bodice, but it’s a 34 bust, and I’…

    I made this dress back in August, but I hadn’t worn it yet. It’s not the sort of thing you wear every day – it needed an event to do it justice.

    pambox commented on the project The Wicked Stitch: Through The Looking Glass

    With the bodice being fitted straight under the bust, the contrast of the vertical and horizontal stripes is great, and very flattering. I love the interplay of the different directions of stripes.

    This is gorgeous. I love the personality of it, which makes it so much more interesting than an off-the-rack white wedding dress.
