Description

Phew, this was a project and a half! I’ve never made a bias dress before and I was on a deadline (I make this to wear at en event). I started off with the Little Bias Dress from Vera Venus, though it’s barely recognizable after all the changes I made. Drafted my own bodice and switched the back and front ruffle.

Overall very happy with how it turned out! I’ll probably never wear it again but it sure was an interesting challenge.

Edited to add: Lots more info on my blog. Come and say ‘Hi’

I also learned to do finger waves for this look.

    Wowza! This is so gorgeous. Also, I have always wanted to learn finger waves and you have inspired me to look on YouTube. The whole look is beautiful.
