AW - Dress — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

AW - Dress

Last week I got a new toy for my sewing and I've been totally geeking out over it. I got a soldering iron, which works perfectly for cutting pieces out of fabric that usually frays. It's really for a massive costume project I'm going to be working on in the new year, but of course I had to try it out, and I decided that a 50's style dress would be the way to go! So I picked up some taffeta (1.50 a meter!) and got to work.
Now, it's not done yet, but I'm pretty proud of what I have so far. It still needs the lining to be sewed in and (obviously) the crinoline (and I think I'm going to put some boning in the waistband as well, but I'll wait and see on that). So I put it on and came downstairs to show MH. I had to tell him to stop laughing v.v;
Yes, it does look like a bad 80's prom dress right now lol

Re: AW - Dress

  • It does not look like an 80s prom dress. I love it. Well done, talented lady. Can't wait for the finished product!
  • Thanks for the vote of confidence =) I'm doing this without a pattern, so I'm glad that I'm not the only one who thinks it's coming together nicely lol

  • Love this... Beautiful job! Amazes me that you can do this :-bd
    I am not sure how to say this without getting a "solicitation" warning so I guess I just say that I am not longer active on THIS site.
