Pattern Development

As promised, my pattern piece(a couple of days late, sorry about that). This gives you a much better idea about what I was trying to explain about the rotation of the darts into the left shoulder. It's a weird looking pattern piece, but it works. The back pattern is just a very normal looking back pattern.

This is another version of the dress I showed you on Monday. The first dress has a much fuller skirt. I think I like this one better. It's amazing how many times I will make up a pattern before I am completely satisfied with it. At this point I am almost there. I still have a little tweaking to do to the cowl neckline. Basically it is fine, I just want it to be a little better. But in the meantime, I have a new dress and a smokin' pair of shoes to wear with it. I bought the shoes (not Payless) at the end of the season a couple of summers ago and believe it or not, I had nothing to wear them with. The fabric is from Vogue in Evanston.  

 My first version with the fuller skirt. Which do you like best?

So one more try and I think I'll be there.

  1. Those are some smokin' shoes. As for the dresses, I like both versions. Can't decide which I like more.
