Description

This is the dress I created to wear for my 10th anniversary. The silk fabric was a gift from my husband a few years ago. He brought it back from a business trip to San Francisco. I have been watching a lot of Downton Abby this winter and decided I wanted something kind of 20’s inspired, but modern. I picked Burda’s Dropped Waist Dress #105 for my Project. The pattern was easy to sew and needed very little adjustment in fit. I had to add 1/2 inch to bring the under arm up a bit, and take the drop waist up 2" at the skirt to get the right length for my dress. This dress was very easy and fast to make. The main problem I ended up with on this project is that I did not realize my fabric was a directional print until I went to cut. I had to cut to match prints and did not have enough fabric to do this. I solved this issue by cutting the second skirt layer using my under fabric and then sewing my dress fabric to the lower edge where visible. This created a lining with a trendy sheer bottom for my dress. I attached chains I found in the jewelry section of the craft store to the shoulders. My husband love it!

    Oh, I forgot to add that I tied a simple ribbon around my waist to get a better fit for my body type.
