Sew Much Fabric. I'm not all sappy about her y'all, I just love working with people who put customer service at the top of the list. I'm a sucker for good customer service. I named this post "I Am Not a Stedford Wife!!" because that is the mold I felt I was being forced into when told to "stick to the basics". EWWWW!!!
periscope for this endeavor. I know YOU ALL are very loyal and very supportive of every single thing I do. However, I must admit these ladies help me with my to-do list, and are constant reminder "bells" to keep me focused and on track. That live connection is just so gratifying for me and really motivates the creative genius that I am. As I prepared for this photo session, I asked myself: "Can I vamp this dress up a little." ...it just reminded me so much of my "corporate" days. I almost felt like I should have splashed a little paint on the front. Then I decided to do a little Peri-photoshoot and get help from my live viewers. They encouraged the pie plate and bowl ensemble. I loved every thing about this shoot. Even the relation to the elusive "Stepford Wife" icon.
Sheath Dress Construction Details:
This dress has been detailed so exhaustingly in videos on my youtube channel, that it is hard for me to honestly talk about its construction any further. Please just enjoy the pictures and know that any questions you could possibly have regarding this dress is already documented in the videos on my channel. If there are any questions you have directly please leave a comment and let me know so I can make public any content that hasn't been release. Trust me, it has all been filmed or broadcast on Periscope. I only did Tissue Fitting, which is detailed extensively in my Youtube videos.
- Pattern is Vogue 9025, size 14
- Alterations: FBA, Broad back, waist lengthened, Armhole made smaller, hips adjusted for larger rear end.
- Zipper excluded because fabric stretches so well.
- Lined completely
- Lowered and reshaped the neckline- video here.
- many more.....
- I don't mean to send you on a wild goose chase. It's just easier at this point to direct you if you have questions, rather than go into trying to determine what might be a good topic to discuss with the dress fitting and pattern work.
If I wanted to take this dress apart and knit-pic every single wrinkle, it would be ridiculous. I could have worn a body slimmer to take care of the back rolls....yeah right!!?? Whatever, you just hold that thought. In the mean time, lets be real, this is a ponte knit, very nice I might add. Beefy with wonderful recovery. The fit is wonderful, considering I did not do a muslin. Now, I'm gonna go eat some pie.
