A dress I made today.... something different
Posted by Cathy (Kellycat) on 7/16/2017, 3:49 pm
I just finished this today. It's really better in person. This was my idea. What this is is a white strapless sheath underneath another blue sheer dress that has a full skirt. The blue fabric is dotted swiss on organza. It is sheer so I had to use tulle as a lining (you know, the netting that you use to make a wedding veil). The two dresses are sewn together at the front bust darts and at the waist. You can't do any darts in the blue fabric without the seams showing so I had to sew the two bodices as one for the darts. It was a bit tricky but I conquered it! I used a new pattern I bought on ebay by Designs by Jude for outer dress and used some other pieces I already had to make the strapless sheath underneath.
Here are pics, front and back:
Thanks for looking!
