- Raise the neckline 1 inch
- Extend the shoulder seams 3/4 inch, that included extending the front and back neck facings
- Added three inches to the length of the dress
Please bear with me in showing my work right now. Since my dresses are planned for fall/winter wearing I'm displaying them via dressform. I plan on making a collage later when I do wear the dresses.
|I used black pontederoma for the sleeves and base of the dress, and snow leopard for the center panel for an on trend look, both from my stash. The dress is unlined.|
|Choose solid black for the back of the dress.|
Dressform: an apparatus used to display completed apparel. Truthfully, not very useful for fitting purposes, although we all think it will be. Something we feel is a MUST for our sewing rooms. Mine, when dialed to match my measurements has a big hollow hole for a tummy, and openings on the sides that makes the hips appear larger than they should be (a bow hipped appearance). A structure that seems to always be in my way no matter where I place it in my tiny sewing room. Objects placed on said dressform ALWAYS appear larger than they actually are. WHY IS THAT???
This is the third fall/winter dress of my collection, and there may be two or three more coming up....
