Delicate Paisley Dress, new project

 Photobucket  Wow! There are many days without posting here, the fault of life, some small worldly disasters have been proposed to make my days an obstacle race .... How can die the washer, my car and the iron in the space of a few days??
    Well, I'm not going to let that interfere with my desire to sew, of course, so I'll get by this dress is on my wish list since I bought the magazine Burda February and found it Model101 has many fans among the seamstresses who want to add a retro nod to the wardrobe.
   But please, let me show you the fine print on the fabric .. It's a delicate paisley in blue on white fabric makes this absolutely beautiful to the eye.

  The dress is in the process of creation since yesterday and I must say that it is easy and quick to make, however, I will take a little longer because I have a few minor alterations on the dress.
  Photobucket
     For starters, I built the top of the dress with the fabric and cotton lining sewn as if it were a single layer of tissue, it gets to the top of the dress is heavier and more stable.
    The skirt of the dress is simple fabric that it does not weigh much.
   I change the seam invisible zipper to the center back, as in the pattern I had closed neckline an inch all around. With this alteration, I avoid the problems of destroying the hair top ass the dress on me.

  I'm thinking also use a crochet lace blue contrast in the neck line and sleeves and finish everything with a small bias tape of the same fabric at the edges.

  That's it for today, it's midnight here, so play Friday night enjoy a beautiful and relaxing movie in black and white.

I hope to finish the dress morning, to will use it next Sunday in another family reunion that hope is as fun as the last  weekend.
       
                Have a wonderful weekend!!!!

  3. Rosy, this is another gorgeous dress! Where do you buy your fabrics? They are stunning and they look perfect for each dress you make.
    About the appliances; it happen to me as well. About 3 months ago my washer and dryer, my phone and my daughter's phone also die on the same week.

  4. I think the dress is so much your style! When I saw it in the magazine It reminded me of a similar dress you made and I loved. The crochet detail will look lovely although, if I´m allowed a suggestion, I´d make it in white. It´ll be wonderful anyway!

  8. I love the fabric! And that crocheted (sp) lace is only going to enhance it.

    Thanks for the recommendation on Sew Weekly. I just signed up.

    Sorry to hear about the appliances. I just went thru something similar 2 weeks ago. For me it was both cars, the washer, and then the lift on my sewing table. I could handle everything, but the lift going out, just messed up my entire sewing strategy for the week!

    Can't wait to see the finished dress, its going to be stunning.
