Way back in March TC bought me the awesomest birthday present ever: a dress form. This dress was my first project using the dress form to fit. I cut it out in a size 14 and shaped it to fit. I pinched a little here, a little there, took in the waist to fit me exactly, slimmed down the skirt from a 14 to a 12, and voila! A perfect fitting dress. I also lengthened the skirt by 3 inches, and still, I think I could have lengthened it just a bit more.
I love the rolled collar like crazy. I think it's adorable and a little bit retro. I have trouble with the back of the collar standing up a bit, but luckily it doesn't show up in these photos.
I love to wear a little brooch on the collar.
Overall I like this dress. The extra effort in fitting really paid off. I finished it in April and it's gotten quite a bit of wear since then, which brings me to my shoes...
Guess Patches in black leather. They are comfortable. So comfortable. and I love wearing them.
We bought them in March from DSW and they have been getting a lot of wear since then.
