>Dress progress


how far I have gotten

So this is how far I have gotten on the dress; the bodice is done and sewn together at the shoulders. The edging for the neck is in place, and the buttons have been sewn on, as well. I have begun to work on the skirt portion of the dress, also. I still have two sleeves to make, then the dress is done. This is a vintage size 4; the reason I say that is because modern clothes have different sizing than vintage. When done, there will be a ribbon that runs through the neck beading and around the waist at the waist beading.

This is a detail of where the skirt starts.

This part of the dress is the back portion with 5 reclaimed antique mother of pearl buttons. The thread being used is also a discontinued thread, so once I use my stash of it I cannot replace it.
