I made this dress about a year ago, with fabric I picked up in Puerto Vallarta. The fabric was quite cheap, so I still have quite a bit left. I’ve also made a prototype handbag and a pair of baby kimono shoes with it.
This dress is a modified version of Vogue 8382.
I closed up the neckline and added a lining of white bastite. This dress has pockets, which is really great. But after I made it, I realised that I really didn’t like the shoulder straps or the overall length. When I wore this outfit in Me Made March, I suggested I might shorten it. Despite many very kind comments from other seamstresses, who thought the length was fine, I decided to do it.
So, did I make the right decision?
