Here ye, here ye….My sequined beauty is on hiatus :(. I was all set to burn the midnight oil on the daunting task of making a sequin dress this past weekend and then I realized that I have a wedding reception to go to and nothing to wear!
I made a mad dash to my computer and I started searching through my database of fabrics like a crazy person when there it was, this beautiful piece of unused of ikat fabric. Being super excited, I jumped for joy and did some celebratory kicks and twirls. Sadly, dizziness started to set in ( I thought I had at least 2 more minutes of good twirls and kicks in me). So, back to the drawing board I went, literally. I did a rough sketch of what I wanted as seen below and started the pattern making process:
Now, I was going to complain about how annoying it is to make a pattern for my body but I’m guessing most of you don’t know what my body looks like so this is my complaint, I’m a size 2 but for some odd reason I have a 32FF bra size, HUH. So making tailored tops are very time consuming to say the least. But I finished sans figuring out the neckline I wanted and this is what I got:
Let’s try this baby on!
Fit is looking pretty good so now it’s time to work with the real thing. I will leave you with a better view of the fabric because Photoshop just doesn’t do it justice.
Stay tuned for the big Reception Dress reveal!
