Brooklyn, New Yo...
Vogue 7568 version B
I made it straight from the package way before I ever knew much about modifications for personal fit.
It’s been in the back of my closet for 4 years taunting me. Now I feel like a fool for not being more proactive and fixing her flaws.
Flaws: shoulder seam is too far forward (my boobs pull it I think), I should have used some sort of stay tape along the CF V shape since the bias is rippling. The bottom panel is cut on the straight grain (why vogue? why?) yet the dress is totally on the bias (can’t walk for anything in this dress).
Awesomeness: the hand stitched bias lining (just needs a hem and tacking at the side seams), and the wicked awesome job I did on the organza neckline.
Eminent Mods: Rip of the dumb organza band at the bottom and replace with a bias one (I’ll need to get more organza)
Silk Crepe backed Satin, China Silk for lining, Silk organza, black thread, black invisible zipper
Pattern of the Week
You’ll want to wear this dress to tiki parties, spring weddings, and afternoon dates...
