I made a slip of the tongue, and promised Ellen I’d sew another dress for her. That was maybe half a year ago, and suddenly the wedding she was going to attend came really close… So I convinced her that the dress she already has is a very good fit on her, but this time we’d make a longer and wider skirt . So in two weeks (having it really busy at the lab as well) I finished this dress for her.
I did two fittings, and since she’s quite short, I shortened the front pieces with 4cm. By doing so, I kept the curve from the halterneck to the curves around the arms were very flattering. By having more than enough fabrics and having bought serrated shears, cutting the polyester micro satin and the acetate lining was a lot easier than expected.
