This is one of the first dresses that I've made [that i'm at least proud of and would totally tell people I made it]. It's more of a reworked dress. The base is the green scoop back dress with the sequin detailing by Scott McClintock. I bought it from Goodwill! WHAT! It was originally a size 14. I took it home and tucked it away for the past year. After washing it...
Side Note: Always wash things from Goodwill! or eBAy! There was that woman who died buying her wedding dress from eBay cause somebody grave-robbed it and she was allergic to formaldehyde!
Anyways, after washing it I took in the dress at the seam and zipper. It was still missing something. The bottom went straight down except the back which had the pleating. When I went to Joann Fabric the flannel was 60% off. I couldn't resist. I sewed in the triangle pieces, each one with an asymmetrical edge. The problem is that i decided to keep the back pleated area cause everytime I tried the dress on I absolutely loved it, but with my zeal I cut the bottom off... a lot. I sewed leftover flannel to extend the dress to the floor and VOILA!
I Love it.
My husband Hates it.
He can pry it off me. He now has two reasons for undressing me.
