Here’s the dress I made using couture methods that was discussed in my Thank You post.
I realized afterward that I didn’t need this many pictures, but couldn’t figure out how to delete just a couple and didn’t want to start over, so here ya go. Wish I had remembered to photograph the back. It is really nicely matched and my handpicked zipper is almost invisible. You’ll just have to take my word for it.
Daughter was freezing her butt off yesterday posing in this while it was snowing and sleeting outside. No, of course it was not that cold inside, but it sure wasn’t toasty either. We were both wishing for the summer weather that will be necessary for wearing this dress! The cotton lining means she can wear it without a slip and be cool and comfy when she goes to those street festivals and barbeques. I little cardigan or pretty shawl will be fine when the cooler evening arrives. She’s very happy with it and I’m on to the the next one!
