Pale Blue Bodice


I said I was going to do it, and I've done it. Mostly. I think she needs a shadow panel lining the front skirt.

I made life a little harder than it had to be by (1) using a vintage machine I've never sewn on before, with a (2) fabric that's very sheer and inclined to snag while I (3) added a lining to a dress with facings while (4) including the facings in the form of sewn-in interfacing which I've never worked with before. But, I think I've made it through the forest. Just in time for weather that's too cool for this ice-blue confection.

Well, it will be something to look forward to in spring!

Gorgeous! It makes me want to go back in time and wear it to my bridal luncheon! I love that fabric, the color, the sweetness of it.

Very impressive.

Such a beautiful color - it's been my favorite this late Summer/Fall and I love the fabric! The ruched waist is lovely too : )

You did give yourself quite the challenge, but it certainly looks worth the effort. Very pretty.

Oh, pretty! And congratulations on getting a gorgeous product despite some challenges. (I'm curious about what kind of vintage machine, too... I just got one myself and am thrilled with it, though it is taking some getting used to.)
