Halter Maxi Dress – This was very time consuming as i made this dress from the original pattern and it was WAY too big. And if you’ve ever sewn anything stretchy and then need to rip all the seams you know how amazing this was. think about ripping out every single stitch including the straps and starting over! so fun. Anyway i had to start from scratch with this, altering the strap placement so that it would fit my petite frame a little better. Also please excuse any crazy mess you see behind me :) I hope to take some better pics soon, with outside backdrop and natural lighting. ps i finished the hem After i took the pix. so that’s done. There’s a slit up the side as i wasn’t sure whether or not to do a Jessica Rabbit look or what! So yeah.. Happy viewing peeps!
