Description

another attempt to make something out of the Stylish Dress book..

this time i found a sheer cotton (blend?) fabric that i thought would be perfect for the T pattern from that book (see last picture)..the detail of the fabric can be seen on the second last picture. yes, it’s Dior, so how could i resist??

i did everything correctly and neatly this time, taking my time and not rushing to finish it..had a problem with making the button hole/loops (whatever it’s called), but i guess the result is acceptable. i added a layer of soft tulle under the skirt part, to make it look less like a country-side dress. instead of making covered-up buttons, i used normal plastic ones, like the ones for buttoned-up shirts.

it just disappointed me a bit that the result was soooo baggy, even though i used the same size as i’ve always used from that book (size 11). i wonder if there’s still anything i can do to the top part to make it less baggy. meh.

but anywho, on a lighter note, the dress reminds me of Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, so i donned it up with my red glitter shoes for the photo shoot. Dorothy, meet Dior.
oh, and Mr. Dior, sorry i ruined your fabric :p
