Paisley Charmeuse Custom Dress

This dress was a lot of fun to make! The client is local to me, so we were able to meet in person to purchase fabrics and for her fittings. She needed a dress that was very modest to wear to a conservative church, but that still flattered her figure and reflected her personal sense of style. When she came to me, she had already spent a good amount of time looking through commercial dress patterns, and had fallen in love with Vogue 8408 for its dramatic, asymmetrical collar. So we started with the Vogue pattern, but altered from the original to have a narrower, pencil skirt, a closer fit through the waist, 3/4 sleeves with cuffs, and a longer skirt with a small side slit instead of the kickplate in the original design.
