So, I guess this comes over me in waves!

Having completed the Eyemeric outfit last week, I felt a sense on accomplishment.  Although there were things I would have done differently (there always are!)

So, I moved on to a prototype dress.  When I say a prototype.  The actual materials for this dress were 1) difficult to acquire and 2) pretty expensive.  So I decided I would start by making a similar dress from less expensive material and "see how it goes" first.

I actually like the cheaper material better (for scale and the way it falls) -- go figure.

So, after a weekend of measuring, figuring and sewing, here's where I am:

This style dress holds extra special sentiment for me, so I want to make sure I get it right.  I was privileged enough to see the original dress in person (that's a whole other story).   Any guesses on the designer?  I'll reveal when I complete the actual dress (not this prototype) :)

I've put the zipper in the back.  I always screw up zippers.

About 3/4 down, you can see where my machine's foot hit the zipper pull and went a little off kilter.  I should pick it out and start over, but it's just a prototype, so I can't be bothered.  (shame on me).

  1. I can't wait to see the finished product. You are right. It's a prototype, the zipper doesn't need to be perfect. I need to get back to my sewing this week, too. Thanks for the inspiration.
