In the mean time, I've been plotting. And drafting.
This is the dress that I want to make, or at least a passable representation. Even if the model does look a little evil.
And like she maybe has a broken leg.
I know I want:
- a boat neckline
- short kimono sleeves
- gathered, bloused bodice
- flared skirt with gathered waist
- a cascade
- facings to finish the neckline and armholes
- this fabric
(it looks better in person, swear)
I'm not sure:
- how I want to finish the edge of the cascade
- how best to hem it
- how to attach the elastic in the waist
My goal is to have this finished by summertime, so I've got roughly a million and a half years to get it done.
