|Here are some details about my project:|
|Style||Cute, Romantic, Classic|
What are you most proud of? The lace on the top with the vertical lines helps soften the look. It made the whole top I think. Also I made sure to make it long enough just longer than my wides point of thighs... It makes me look slimmer.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? I actually only overlocked/Serged the ends... and nothing more. Super easy and fast. Choose a 3 thread overlock with short length and it looks fine as an edging. Hoping it will hold in wash as well... :-D I will say that I actually went back and adder proper endings as the overlock was NOT enough. It folds up to easily and the threads gets easily caught on something. Advice: incorporate styling advices for your body shape in your design. I am hourglass-ish/chello as my shoulders a slightly narrower than my hips. So my design choices was based on that I have big boobs (added the lace to soften) big tummy (made it not to tight) and big hips (made the skirt longer to fit me right below my widest point)
