I finished the first version of this dress before I even started this blog. I have learned so much since then. But not enough, apparently.
When I first wrote about this dress, I said it was very comfortable to wear. But since then I have gotten a lot better at fitting clothes well and I couldn’t help but find all kinds of things to improve. I stopped wearing this dress all together for quite a while. Then I got the bright idea to take the whole thing apart and change the shape. Can you blame me? The top is so unique looking!
My biggest problem with the fit of the dress is that silly two layer skirt. The white part is fitted, and quite comfortable, and the yellow part is a huge circle skirt. There are no side seams! In a windy, mountain top town that is less than ideal.
Personally, I like more fitted dresses. Before starting the remake of this dress, I was hot off the success of my Halloween dress. In my opinion, that dress fits me better than anything I’ve made yet. So I was feeling bold and I had an idea of what I wanted the finished product to look like. And then things fell apart.
I started taking pictures of the progress, but and some point I stopped taking pictures as a white hot panic took over and I didn’t think it was going to work. But enough fluff, here’s the end result!
