cotton organza dress using Sheer Dress Bodice

Postby elensari » Fri Mar 30, 2012 7:59 pm

Hi there!

Just finished the day portion of an organza dress and thought I would share. I used the new Sheer Dress bodice from TV447. I LOVE it! The bodice is well worth the effort. I love the way it looks and how it goes together really well. This was a lot of fun. I draped the collar myself. The skirts are just widths of fabric, 4 for the bottom and three for the top. I based the belt and pocket off of period examples in my books. Now I just need to make the ball top and hat. :D

Thanks!

So pretty, and I agree-the bodice pattern is really neat. 8)

Aw! It's so pretty and darling! A perfect summer day dress! And it's BLUE. I want it!

Just curious, how did you make the little pouch? And how is it attached?

Absolutely beautiful! Maybe I'll be motivated enough to start my own dress now :)

What's really amazing is this looks a lot like a dress that recently went on display at the museum where I interned at.
