Coctail dress made with Calvin Klein Vogue American Designers 2051, one of a lot of patterns I got on E-bay a few months ago. Copyright 1988. I think I’m really beginning to like the 80’s again (though not all of it).
I only made a few changes, I shortened it a bit (ehum, happens every time I sew a skirt or dress) and removed some width around the back and skirt to make it fit me better.
There’s a boned foundation with a waist stay that makes it stay in place and very comfortable to wear.
More information at my blog.
Polyester (?), cotton (for the foundation), zipper, grosgrain ribbon for waist stay and boning-casing, polyester boning.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
