Looming UFO - Vogue 8489
This is supposed to be the final summer project. I hoped it would be a transition dress. We can definitely feel fall in the air, sunny and clear skies during the day and cool at night. Last week I thought I would finish this before the holiday. Instead I became less enthusiastic about the dress because I over estimated the FBA.
Yep…, I made a huge over estimate. See hear. Next to alterations, picking seams apart is my least favorite “sewing related” thing to do. But, I can’t let this fabric go to waste. So soon I will knuckle under and make the adjustments. I’m hoping I can remove some of the fabric at the base of the bodice.
This week I’m finishing DD’s dress for the Unity Conference along with sewing my dress and starting a suit for a client.
Here’s the pattern and fabric I selected for my dress. It’s Butterick 5520. I purchased my fabrics from Vogue (Satin - Matte finish) and Fishman (Silver and Cream Brocade). My dress is cut and ready to sew.
