So here is the nitty gritty on the dress!
But before the dress a doggy picture! We have recently moved into a new home, and I get a whole sewing room all to myself in the basement! Here is one of my little puppies Elvis that keeps me company. Notice how many beds he has out for him, spoiled much?
I created the pleats using the artist tape trick and reminded myself how rusty I have gotten with sewing. Apparently taking a year off sewing is NOT like riding a bike!
After I created the bodice pleats and attached them at the shoulder seam. I basted the sides to see how it would fit. I am always skeptical of a wrap dress fit that is held together with snaps. Like these better be some industrial strength snaps that would hold a sail down in a hurricane, and even then the snaps may not be strong enough to hold the dress on.
