Pleated Dance Dress Take 2
My two sister just graduation with their Masters degree! Woohoo, I’m so proud of them. T wore her dance dress to the occasion. It looks great as a regular dress too!
Since it was sheer and a leotard is kinda silly, I made a slip for her. Of course I used stash fabric and the only thing that coordinated was my turquoise bamboo/cotton/lycra knit from Fabric.com. It was purchased a million years ago. I really need to work down this stash:
Here’s a pic of the slip:
I ended up drafting it myself because it was just quicker. There is an empire seam and the bodice is self lined. Nice and quick. T even likes to wear it by itself as a simple summer dress. She can even do it with leggings.
I wasn’t thinking, but I should’ve gotten a better pic of what I was wearing. Can you tell what it is? Yes, it the Vogue 1249 and I have to say that I love this outfit. This is my most favorite project that I’ve ever made. And I even found shoes that match perfectly. It was fate!
