Description

DETAILS

Pattern- Vintage McCall’s 9229 (1968) borrowed from Bri at work. I made version C.
Fabric- Black Holey Suede (poly) for the yoke and Copper Flow (spun rayon) for the lower part of the dress. Both fabrics from Tessuti Fabrics and were already in my stash.
Alterations- This is a maternity pattern and had large pleats in the side seams (for belly growth). Since i am NOT preggers i left these out. I also left off the neck and armhole facings because i was using a fabric with holes. Instead i used a poly/cotton binding in black from my stash to bind the edges.
I made this dress in an evening. The most time consuming part being adding the binding. I put in a regular dress zip, my first in a while (i usually use invisible zips) and i was very impressed with the finished result. I like it loose but think i may invest in a nice wide black belt to wear with it too.
