Today is my friend's bridal shower, and I just finished my shabby apple-inspired dress last night! So i get to wear it!
I really like this dress. I fits me really well, and it is SOOO comfy. Take that Shabby Apple! I wanted to make the neckline a V-neck with the rose on top so my neckline would lengthen, making my chest look smaller. The empire waist emphasizes the smallest part of me, and the skirt has a slight a-line which balances my top-half. I'm thinking i look pretty hot. The sunglasses help.
It didn't take me very long to make because I didn't have to make any new patterns. The bodice and waistband are from my evening gown, the sleeves are from Cassandra, and the rose detail is from Piper. Pattern pieces are so easy to mix and combine, even if you use pre-made patterns. If you don't like a skirt of a dress, just use a different one! It's all about trial and error, and I'm relieved this dress made it through those adjustments so it is actually wear-able. Have a great weekend!
