My sophisticated dress

Added Dec 2, 2012

by Karen Thoonen







This project took me a while to finish! All those seams I had to align! I’m a perfectionist ;) But today I’m proud to share some pictures of my result.
The pictures where taken by my boyfriend when we went to the premire of a local theatre piece ‘popcorn’ (yesterday).

Please visit my blog for more pictures and some description on how to align the top stitching of all those seams and how I adjusted my bodice for a better fitting. (www.kathoprojects.blogspot.be)

Material Notes

100% wool (1m80) polyester lining, staytape, zipper and thread for topstitching.




Winter, Fall
Garment Type
Business, Classic
