Do What makes You HAPPY and Be Done with All the Rest
Hey Queens! Long time no blog.. If you follow my business Instagram Page, @yetundesarumi, or my snapchat, @sewurbane, you know I've been super busy. It's really hard balancing work, business, blogging, Pretty Girls Sew, YouTube, and hanging out with family/friends. I'm learning to schedule my time and prioritizing what is more important.
Anyways, this dress was sewn a few months ago, but I still wanted to share the details with you. It was a franken pattern using Vogue 8943 and Vogue 9021 as guides. Vogue 8943 is a pattern for fit and flare lace dress, I only used the bodice pattern and the slip pattern; and Vogue 9021 is a pattern for a fitted dress with butterfly sleeves, but I only used the skirt pattern and extended it to my desired length.
When I purchased this fabric in 2014, in Nigeria, I wasn't sure what I wanted to make with it. I finally decided to make a peplum dress that has unfinished neckline and hemline.
In addition to the Bodice and Skirt Pattern, I drafted and added a peplum for a more flattering look. I made the slip significantly shorter than the dress hemline to give it a sexy look. I loved how the whole thing came out.
I styled the dress with a rose gold clutch purse and floral pumps. More pictures below..
