I bought fabric back in January, but I didn’t start to work with it until a few weeks ago.
So cute, right??
Originally, this fabric was supposed to be a dress with a bateau neck in front, with a V in back. It had fitted sleeves, and a midriff. The pleats were at the sides of the dress.
This is what came out.
While I look great from the side, the front was just AWFUL, and the back skirt needed work.
I took out the midriff, completely redid the sleeves into bell sleeves, did a completely new front bodice (scoop neckline). Then, I belted it to accentuate my high waist. I moved the pleats from the sides to all the way around. I also shortened the heck out of it (with a 4” hem).
This is what happened.
MUCH BETTER!!!!!! The bell sleeves did wonders!!! What do you think?
