New (old) Project: Cross over party dress

Remember this? Well I haven't managed my time well and I don't have the money for all the bias silk and yada yada I'm making do with what I have and I'm excited! I draped and patterned the bodice on Saturday and finished the skirt pattern and did the mock up this afternoon. I need to add length at the shoulders is what I'm guessing. I need to make the bodice longer? surprise surprise. I did add quite a bit already though, so it is a little surprising.

 I have the luxury of lots of costume people around so I'll get some MFA friend of mine to do a fitting. We start building Hamlet next week so I'll try to get this done after hours by the end of this week...which probably won't work, but we'll see!

Just a simple dress bc I'm using the fabric on the left that I bought awhile ago with the bodice and the skirt going different directions.


  1. Am I mean if I think all three fabrics are super-ugly? Maybe they look better in person. :)

  2. Some fabrics basically need to be seen in a dress to be appreciated, I reserve judgement until then...
