Project

Seqins, Crystals, & Satin

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Butterick 5708 Link to website or photo butterick.mccall.com/b5708-products-15269.php?page_id=371&search_control=display&list=search What are you most proud of? The bodice is embellished with Swarovski crystals, but the part I'm most proud of was being able to get the dress zipped. The invisible zipper got stuck at the last minute, and I now have bad blisters on my fingers from trying to close it! What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you want to make a flattering vintage dress, you will have to start with getting the correct silhouette. I wear a firm corset for my dresses, but a girdle or shaper would work just the same.
