So I just realized I hadn’t updated about this dress for a long time. I have, however, been working on it quite steadily. Is it more dramatic when I take photos along the way or just suddenly appear with a nearly finished garment? In any case, it is nearly done, just a few stitches inside to hold the elastic and the hem.
I have to say I have a few problems with the design. Nearly the entire front is lined, but the back skirt is not. Because it is so thin I will need to carefully choose my undergarment. Also, the multi layer in the front makes it droop slightly from the weight. If I make it again, I may leave the front drape off or make it smaller. Ultimately, the fabric is too light for the back and to heavy for the front.
All that aside, I am pleased with the way it turned out. The fabric is super soft and comfortable. I think I did a pretty good job, and when I am one hundred per cent done: I will model it.
