Type of item: Clothing
Style: Retro / Vintage
Shantung and organza
What was your inspiration?
Inspiration?! More like desperation! Couldn't find a dress ready made that looked like more than a sack!
What are you most proud of?
Barbara, Didn't have a chance to make the Vogue 8815 due to time constraints before wedding but watched classes and used your techniques to alter and fit a Vintage Vogue pattern 2903. I think it came out great and, judging all the compliments I got, so did everyone else. The yoke material was machine embroidered on a Baby Lock Ellisimo and really set it off. (Note the matching clutch I make!)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Like she says, it's not rocket science, it's sewing! don't be afraid to try something new!
