After all those running posts and with a tutorial on the way (just finalising it at the moment), a little bit more of this wonderful sewing project I did. I got this Monsoon dress from a girl at work and it was rather large and shapeless. Of course that had to be changed!
This is the dress. Cute (not ironed I know!), but a bit baggy in its size 14. But I can see the potential!
First, the sleeves had to go...
Then I shortened the dress by taking the dress up by the straps. This meant taking off the entire beaded section, recutting it, and sewing it back on. I also took the dress in a bit to fit me (am not a size 14 after all).
Taadaa! Said dress in action at a party :) Yes that is just juice by the way, the cocktails were just too strong!
I am very pleased with this result and even wore this dress to our anniversary dinner. It's very comfortable and with all the purple it actually matches my vintage necklace also! Do you like it?
