With very little sewing experience - see previous two posts for completed projects - I decided that it was a good idea to make a strapless dress to wear to this wedding. I am pretty sure there were a few family members thinking that I was crazy. How hard can it be? Buy the pattern, cut the pieces, follow the instructions and sew a few seams . . .
Okay, although it was a little more involved than I had anticipated, it truly wasn't too difficult.
Here it is in all its glory - and those arms are proof that I don't work out!
Don't mind the wrinkles, after the reception the dress was rolled into a ball and thrown in my closet, only to be taken out minutes before these glamour photos as taken by hubby.
This is also a great shot to show that the dress is a little ill fitting. The bunching makes it look to small, but the problem is that there is too much fabric and it is a little large.
A lovely side profile, don't I look stunning? ;)
Now with this last view I must reveal a little secret. As well made as this dress appears, I had to safety-pin it to my bra to ensure that it did end up around my ankles. (I of course then prayed that my bra would stay securely around my chest; I can report success!)
I can report that overall I was happy with the way this dress turned out. Before my next garment, I will take extra care to redo my measurements to make sure I make the most accurate size
Live the moment, love life!
