Red Striped Dress- Day 2

Outfits, DressRachel ChurchComment

I'm loving how this dress is turning out!  I'm using an adjustable dress form to work from for this project.  It has dials that rotate to different measurements, so I'm getting a better fit than if I kept it on a standard sized mannequin. Something came over me and I decided to put the dress backwards onto the dress form.  Maybe I had too much coffee...who knows. not sure if you've caught on yet, but I don't always like rules.  This doesn't refer to the stopping at red light kinds of rules; just mainly fashion.  I do like to shake things up whenever possible though.  The sleeves are now removed and the front button down closure is being transformed into a low cut back opening with buttons.  The back is also being modified into a slight boat neck collar and fitted bodice.  Pretty cool, huh!? Tomorrow is the big reveal of the final product, so don't miss it!
