last resort


6 months pregnant
trend - 60's fashion (very fitted at the waist) waist is double the size it should be
6 weddings to attend in 2 months and cannot find a dress

make it yourself!!

I'm using the pattern of the dress, with some slight modifications. Shorter, add tulle lining under skirt, do not add straps but instead add a lace bodice with 3/4 length sleeves. I'm so excited to see the outcome...hope it turns out ok.
Working the pattern has to be the part I hate the most. I apologize for my disheveled look, it was around 11pm and I had been up since 5:30am that morning. 
I ended off the night at 1:30am with the pattern and fabric all cut up and ready to sew. I was at my parents house as I needed some guidance from my mother. She's a sewing genius!!

More pictures to come. I have a pretty busy weekend therefore I will tackle the dress again next week. I have one week to complete this project as this dress has to make it's debut on the 18th of September.

Good luck! I made a dress for my pregnant friend once, it's the best thing when you can't find what you're looking for. I'm the kind of girl who wants it to be finished before I start, so my problem is patience - hope you're better than me! Your mum sure is, mums are more like that! I'm sure it will be perfect!
