I am so very pleased with the results of my new finished creation...
Besides the retro styles, I really have a passion for fine designer styles. They have such a destinquished & polished look. But most of all they make me just feel so put together. And it's amazing how other's look at you.
I almost forgot about this particular dress, when I came across it looking through all my pieces. Remember I had so many things stored in boxes since I did not have proper storage. Now that everything is in proper storage, I am able to go through everything easily, and you will be seeing alot more styles coming out at you.
What I really love is that I can share with you not only how a pattern came out, but hopefully inspire others to make some of the pattern styles in their own material.
Here's the designer pattern I used for this dress, and I'm sorry I am not the svelte looking model that's pictured but I fell in love with this pattern as soon as I saw it.
Like all of you, I am known as the Thrift Queen, so here's the breakdown on this one. I caruse the internet on the pattern sites, and wait until they go on sale for ridiculous prices. This one is a Vogue pattern, which by the way I have a passion for, and I was not quite sure if it would fit right. I am two different sizes, the top smaller than the bottom, OH is that you also?
The best part of this entire designer dress is the pattern was $3.99 on sale from the regular $30. price. The material I found on clearance for $2.00 a yard. It took 3 yards, as the material was 60 inch width. I already had the zipper, so the dress total cost was $10, what a deal. But the best part is that it actually was material labeled for drapes, but I just loved the texture and feel.
Let me know what you think, does it look like it was meant to hang for drapes, or do you think I can get away with it as a designer look dress?
