|The pattern. Those bows|
are killers! Stay away.
I thought I would share some pictures of the final dress.
|No killer bows, |
You can see, I changed it up from the pattern envelope. That bow looked silly and was strangling me. No way I was keeping that. I had already added the buttons to the dress because it was just toooooo white. Yes, I know I made a white dress and how did I think it would look except white? Well, I was still a little overwhelmed by the white so I added the buttons first on the bodice. When the bow started strangling me, I added the buttons to the neckline to change up the look.
The side closing was a bit of a cheat. I used hook and eye tape! What a time saver rather than dealing with individual hooks, eyes and snaps as the pattern recommended. I am all about cutting some corners.
|Wow a smile.|
|1940s style shoes....yum|
These pictures were not taken on the day of the event. Oh no, I forgot to do it that day. My hair looked great for the event, here ….not so much. I didn’t feel like investing hours on hair and make-up for this impromptu photo shoot. But check out the shoes I wore with the dress. Tres chic? No?? Love these shoes! And perfect for 1940s wear.
I am totally making this dress again. I have a navy voile that screams for this dress! Plus, it was such a fun and comfortable dress to wear I need one in a more practical color!!!
