In my last post I am sure you notice the pattern I used and the dress I made the neckline was different. If I did not mention this I am sorry.
In the November issue of Threads magazine there is an article on Reshape a Neckline and I decide to do this on three dresses using the same pattern.
Last night as I reread the article I can tell there is something I just fortunate turn out well for me. I did not make a sloper of the new neckline so that I could use it again.
As you can see the Simplicity pattern has a jewel neckline, on my first dress I made a V neckline.
So I will have to make a sloper of the new neckline out of some muslin fabric that I have.
The article pointed out when changing the width of the neckline you should account for the bra strap positioning to prevent the straps from interfering with a neckline. Put on the bra you plan to wear with the garment, drape the pattern on your body and mark the bra straps’ position on the pattern’s shoulder line.
Oops did no…
I am not a very good model at this time in my life. As you can see I changed the neckline and made it a maxi dress. Also I added width to the sides I wanted fullness at the bottom. I need to restitch the flowers some of them fell off! I did get some compliments which felt good. Therefore I decided to stick with this pattern for the other dresses I have 2 more dresses to make using this pattern ,not more Maxi's soon it will the weather will turn wet and sloppy. Which I truly love! Strange love I know.
Monday I have to concentrate on finishing the sleep caps that are currently listed as UFO status.
