I’m finally getting to post about “My Party Dress” for the December challenge. (I know we are just about half way through January and I’m just getting this to the blog!) I did start a formal party dress, but I’ve got fit issues with the bodice that I have to fix, so instead I made a completely new dress, one that I could wear on Christmas Day.
Earlier in the year I purchased two yards of this beautiful circle eyelet fabric from Gertie’s Etsy Shop. I love the fabric so much that I’ve been too scared to commit it to an actual pattern but in the end I settled on the Kay Unger Vogue 1353 pattern that I’d made before here. The original plan was to line the dress with black siri purchased at the same time from Gertie but this plaid just jumped out of my stash …
I know, crazy right! And believe me I did put it away a few times and tried other options, but I just kept coming back to this one.
I do love the way that you can’t tell it is a plaid, it’s just like the party of colour playing peek-a-boo through the holes.
Happy New Year!
