I’ve been posting my progress all along now, but I thought it would be fun to put a bunch of photos all in one post, a sort of condensed timeline of the process. I’m also frankly delighted to be able to show the pattern in closer proximity to our finished dress. The finished product is basically *exactly* what we discussed while standing in JoAnn’s, and I’m very pleased that I was able to create what Bonnie wanted despite the lack of a pattern with this design. So, here you are, the Black and Blue dress, from start to finish:
Vogue 2931. Halter top, empire waist, princess seams, but not the A-line shape and knee length skirt we wanted.
Bonnie’s “Ugly Dress.” Needs to be shortened and more flare to the skirt.
The outer dress is finished.
The lining and foundation are sewn in (it drapes much better with these, doesn’t it?).
Shortened, hemmed, finished, and modelled by Aunt Bonnie!
