My Mission Maxi.
I wish I could show you this dress. I really do. I made it in one day; it was a dream to sew, turned out beautifully, and is sooo pretty and elegant.
However I’m sad to say that the dreamy jersey I chose for it is shockingly, disappointingly, see through and clingy. The see through I handled with a halter bra & slip but the clingy is another story. In some lights it’s fine but in others I look like a frumpy mess 😦 If only I were a bony supermodel! lol
I SOOOO want to make this again but I’ve learned my lesson; I have to test the opaqueness a LOT more thoroughly next time I buy jersey!!
I really want to save this dress so I might try unpicking the seam binding & making a tricot lining like my smart friend from A Good Wardrobe. Shoulda listened to ya, Lizz! 🙂
Then I tried making a pair of lace tangas from the free pattern over at BurdaStyle, and it turned out a hot mess too. The pattern was massive and the lace was far too flimsy; it was a total wadder 😦 Gonna have to check my sizing & print again, and get some more lace, cause I’m not giving up!!
Here’s hoping my luck turns soon – I’m embarking on a BIG project soon and want it to turn out a lot better than the last two lol.
