Using Up Some Vintage Treasures
I had this really pretty vintage fabric and I decided to play around a bit more with the design I drafted the other day for Abby's B'day dress. This time I left out the godets, and I think I like it better this way. However, you know me. I can't do anything plain and simple so this time I added rouching on the sides so the top skirt gathers up a bit to show off the skirt underneath. I also had a lot of fun with the bodice adding bits and pieces of vintage lace, trim and ribbon to make it "pop". Abby insisted on wearing my pearls because she said it was a "pearl kinda dress" OMG what have I created??? anyway, here are a few shots so you can see my latest.
