I am overall really happy with the results. After trying it on again, I think I am going to take in the skirt front area as it is a little big. Hopefully I'll do that this week and actually get to wear the dress to work soon. Here is the pattern I was working from...
I love this pattern and other than being my first collar and the troubles with that, I really think this was easy to follow. I'd like to make the scoop neck top with either the full or straight skirt sometime also. In choosing a color/pattern of fabric to work with, I knew I wanted to use the grey, which was purchased a while back, and (with the help of my BF) decided to pair the grey with yellow.
And the finished project...
The yellow ended up being a little sheer so I think I am going to buy a yellow cami to go underneath. Also I didn't make the belt or sash that goes with the pattern. I am probably going to pair a wide belt with it, I was thinking black or grey.
So there you have it folks, after much aggravation (lol) another successful project! I already have my next picked out, it's a pattern by Cynthia Rowley---I love it!
Happy Monday! I am praying this week flies by, I have an exciting weekend planned!
