the dress

June 5, 2010

i picked up this Japanese fabric from the workroom and modified the “deep impact” pattern from the BBW Dresses book. it was my first pattern modification attempt. i thought i would prefer the neckline being rounded and shorter than what she designed, but i think it turned out a little awkward.


it also ended up being too big for me (even though i made a muslin!) so i sewed an elastic around the waistband and gathered it along the back. sometimes i wear it with a shirt. sometimes i don’t.
