This is the next of my Local Honey line and I hate that there is only one picture in my cache for it!
Created a bodice fro leftover blue plaid flannel, created a skirt with box and knife pleats, and then had to add the scales.
These were hand stitched, taking TWO hours, and remind me of ice cream spilling out of the sweetheart bust line. I have finally acquired an invisible zipper foot for my machine and don’t have to do buttons anymore! But I have to say, freehanding zippers has become much easier, yet still a waste of time.

    Aww thanks! Somehow after spending way too much time on this site I had not seen your pattern until last week, how the heck did I miss that?!

    Not the bodice. The whole dress. Vogue for the win!

    This looks exactly like Miasu’s contour bust dress… minus the straps. I see where it is slightly different in the top though.

      I’m glad you noticed that many bodices on this website do look similar, but no this was from a vintage Vogue pattern found at a yard sale. Thanks for looking anyway!

      Yeah, no worries! Luckily in the sewing world people are pretty good about giving credit if they use someone else’s ideas. Honestly, my dress was just a combination of what I like to see in a dress (sweetheart neckline, gathered skirt), so it’s inevitable that others would think that too. I mean, I’m positive I saw it somewhere and decided I liked it enough to create my own pattern for it as it is. Thank you for the concern though!

      Btw, I am mighty impressed you sewed that by hand! I can’t imagine doing that. Ever. lol, so kudos to making a cute dress sans machine!
