This dress is probably the best thing I’ve ever made! I made it for a couture sewing class at school – it’s fully lined, bias cut with flounce tiers and a train in the back, spaghetti straps, and an invisible zipper in the side seam. I was going for a vintage Edwardian mixed with 30’s kind of feel – I just wish I had an occasion to wear it!
I took these pictures when we were doing a fashion photo shoot for the campus magazine, Orange Appeal. It looked amazing on the model, Dallas! Since the overall feeling was about whimsy and youthfulness and fun, I decided to toughen her up and pair it with this great vintage motorcycle jacket.
For anyone interested in how I made it – I used Vogue 2237 as a “block”; from that pattern I changed the neckline and added spaghetti straps, separated it across the waist into top and skirt sections, added flounces that I drafted myself, and I’m pretty sure I omitted the foundation pieces and just duplicated all my new ones to make a lining. I can’t remember where the zipper is on the pattern, but I put it on the side. Thanks for looking :)
