Astoria, New Yor...
This is the first pattern I’ve designed completely by myself! I used a basic dress sloper to start with, and then added an asymmetrical neckline, a waist seam, a gathered skirt, a bow on the strap, and lots of tulle under the skirt. It took me forever to make! I used a lot of techniques I hadn’t tried before—using an organza interlining, supporting the bodice with rigeline boning, making a built-in crinoline, and doing the finishing work entirely by hand. Whew! A great learning experience.
