…fromMaree. Thank you! After several days agonizing and several attempts at making something that actually fits me and total frustration, DH and I made a last ditch shopping trip and found a gorgeous 2 piece floor length taffeta dress at Dillards. Fit was decent, but neckline of the jacket was a bit low for my taste and comfort, and the invisible zipper was poorly finished at the end and formed a bulge (probably why the price was reduced from $170 to $60!). Waist a bit loose, but elastic. I decided I would be able to fix the zipper, add a tighter elastic and make a snap in fabric insert for the neckline. The dress is a dark fuchsia iridescent taffeta. I layered a gray chiffon with silver glittery design on it over a fuchsia lining fabric to make the neckline insert and it looks like it was designed that way!
Now to make a flower girl dress. Who knows? I may even find time to sew a few lotto blocks before the end of the month!
