The Shell

Here’s a sneak peek at the dress (minus the foundation so no inner support). I think once the foundation is in, those last few wrinkles will go away. Again, the dress is so much darker than this. Once it’s done, I’ll take some shots without the flash.

I got a lot done today, but was distracted by a last minute visit from a friend. The shell of the dress is done. I decided to use an invisible zipper even though I had been practicing with a regular zip. I just love the look of the invisible zipper.

The dress continues to hang so the bias will fall. I’m feeling very comfortable that I’ll get it done over Thanksgiving.

So here’s what’s next :

  • Darts in the lining
  • Construct lining
  • Complete foundation (add lining)
  • Attach foundation to dress
  • Insert lining
  • Add hooks and eyes to foundation
  • Add waist stay
  • Hem

Then, I’ll start on the hood.
