I have finished my dress! Now, am I happy or not? Well, it depends... I am so so so happy about the pattern and the shape of the dress, but I am not pleased with my fabric... It looks like it is badly sewn and reflects the light in a weird way. Now, that is what happens when you try to spare money, while buying cheapish Polyesther... I have learned my lesson.
But that is my only issue! When I have the dress on, I feel so nice and girly! And it fits really well too. Here are the pics:
|The global shape feels really good and fits me well (I might be wrong ;) )|
|I am loving the lace pieces. They do not seem underlined at all when you look from the outside.|
|A tiny bit of ease shows so easily with that black Poly... But I love my belt. I have interfaced it so it would keep its shape without rolling.|
|First pockets success!|
|Same problem with the fabric. But I love the shape of the skirt and the lace!|
|Sleeves are perfect. The scallop shape hides the bottom of the arms...|
|Inside view, You can see the front seam I had to create because my alterations (muslin step) were a tad too big...|
|I have added an "inside bell inset" with some interfacing to stiffen the contrast fabrics, because lace is not exactly steady ;)|
I think that I will definitively re-use the Macaron pattern, but this time, with a better fashion fabric... I will still wear this for Christmas, because, even if I am ranting a bit, I still love this dress!
What do you think?
