Sewing ADD

Who? Me.
What? Needs a professional dress.
When? ~3 weeks
Why? Giving a talk about my work (yipee!)

Inspiration:
dress1
(this existing dress that I have, sorry for the blue tights, I slipped the dress on over my footwear to take the picture)

Using:

Are things really that simple?
Never! Where's the fun in that. What I like most about this dress is the way the bodice part fits over my shoulders. I did a bit of pattern morphing to get the same neckline.

Wish me luck! I think I chose my fashion fabric and I'm going to make the muslin with the modified pattern v.v. soon.

Love,
Lulu

P.S. Thanks to Creative Reveries for giving me the "You Make My Day" award. In lieu of picking 10 of my favorite bloggers (because I have way more than that) I just want to thank everyone out there in the entire craft blogging community for continually inspiring me.

Hi - you could try Vogue 8280 (the Roland Mouret galaxy dress knock off). It has the rounded bits at the armholes and a cap sleeve (if you leave off the puffy bits) just like your existing dress.

Anyway good luck with your dress, I'm sure it'll look great on you
