I feel I´ve taken forever to finish this dress, but it wasn´t because the dress will need many hours of work, really it took me longer to embroider it that in altered patterns, cut and sew... simply have been other littles things in between that have slowed this last stage of the preparation.
Siento que he tardado una eternidad en acabar este vestido, pero no ha sido porque el vestido necesitara muchas horas de trabajo, en realidad yo tardé más tiempo en bordarlo que en modificar los patrones, cortar y coser... simplemente han habido otras pequeñas cosas en medio que han ralentizado esta última etapa de la confección.
The dress has some changes to the original design, here, but all this has come as a result of the small amount of fabric available for it ... so I wanted the skirt was cut on the bias to get this beautiful flow, this conditioned to be a little shorter than I would have liked, nor is there enough material for a peplum hanging from the waist.
All these restrictions are a lesser evil because the embroidery on the chest gets overshadow everything else, I´m in love with this elegant embroidery, on the photo above you can see the wrong side of this hand made embroidery.
This time I used a slight variation to lining the dress, adding facing neck on the lining , this avoids the tedious task of ironing the interfacing , it´s a fast and effective method that I found here, I remember that I found this link through a sewing blog, but my memory fails at this time.
Of course, this dress is crying out for a belt, there isn´t enough fabric to make a belt in one piece only, so I have prepared an original belt with a small piece of fabric of yoke and sleeves, however, this belt is so special that I think deserves a separate post with tutorial included.
I´m looking forward to next weekend to wear it and my thoughts when I go to sleep revolve around accessories that I could use it... and the next project is tormenting me and wants to come to light as soon as possible...
Is this turning into a beautiful obsession?
Yo estoy deseando que llegue el fin de semana para usarlo y mis pensamientos cuando voy a dormir giran alrededor de los accesorios que yo podría usar con él... y el próximo proyecto me está atormentando ya, quiere salir a la luz lo antes posible...
Se está convirtiendo esto en una hermosa obsesión?
