Here is our starting point:
Here's what I've done so far:
|I had to hand sew!!! Hell to the no!!!!! |
Only for my sister though. I chose a zipper closure since this will all be hidden.
|Again, not the best, but it will not be seen.|
|Skirt innards: Not sure what the content is but the satin is very heavy/sturdy. All the original seams are sturdy and the fabric has held up beautifully.|
What's to come:
The bodice. She has decided on a halter style bodice. At this point, I am mulling over pattern options. I need to make a decision by the weekend. I want to be done completely by mid May - my own deadline. I will be making a trip to A Fabric Place, hopefully this week, to pick up some real satin for the bodice, and organza for the hem.
As you can see my sis has VISION galore, cause I would have taken one good look at that original thing and turned my nose way up. But working with it I see the beauty and potential. We'll see how this thing turns out. Wish me luck.
