I have had this dress pinned on one of my mannequins for about 18 months now. Life got in the way, and there she sat!
This week I made a promise to myself to finish this dress and get it ready to put into my Etsy shop. I will be ordering a new photo back drop and lighting set next week and this will be the first piece to get a clean, professional-looking photo. I am very excited about that!
Yesterday, I finished putting the boning into the dress bodice and worked on assembling the satin skirt. Today I was able to attach the skirt and take on under-stitching the lining.
She’s now ready for an invisible zipper, top stitching, and a hem. Those final details should be finished over the weekend and I will be ready to show you the finished dress!
What do you think about this floral vintage cotton? I was thrilled when I discovered I had enough of it to complete this dress bodice. I have quite a stash of vintage cottons. Looking forward to making some cool pieces with it!
