This is a trial/muslin of a pattern I'm working on. This is the first "go" and there are some obvious problems, but still, all in all, I think it'll be pretty cute once I get the kinks worked out. :)
(Do you recognize the fabric? I know I said that I was going to make a skirt out of it, but there's a TON of fabric, so I decided to use some of it on this little dress. I'll still be making a skirt at some point!)
The neck line is rather large, but, I plan to add a casing and ribbon to it so that it is cinch down-able. The arms are longer then I want them to be, so, I'll be shortening those the next time. Also, you'll probably have noticed that the under arm seam is a bit wonky. Here have a look:
That will need to be fixed as well. This is why I do muslins people! So that I get the kinks out before I destroy the nice pretty fabric that I have planned for the final dress. Not that this fabric isn't nice and pretty... ;)
The last detail that needs some fixing is that I plan on making this dress bubble just a bit, not like big and puffy, just a little bit ruffle-y. (Does that make sense at all? It looks good in my head...) So, that means I need to make the outer layer a bit wider at the bottom then the inner layer. I'll share more as this process unfolds it's self.
Designing is FUN!! :)
I'll be linking up to the parties on my side bar! :)
