Finally, behold, my Melbourne Frocktails Dress!
I know I am remarkably tardy in posting this, but in true Lizzie form, I was chattering way too much at Frocktails to get any pictures of it. Also, going through everyone’s photos here, here and here, one would think I didn’t attend at all as there is little to no photographic evidence!
…with one major change. Can you see my zipper? Nope, not the best invisible zipper ever. When I was trying it on for fit with it basted up, I realized I didn’t require one, so I left it off!! I know, weird right? It felt a bit weird omitting it, almost like it’s an unfinished dress, but of course makes the back lovely and flat.
The only thing I was a little annoyed at myself for was the pattern matching or lack thereof. When I cut it out for some reason I gave it very little thought and as a result have a stupid double print down the front. Whatevs.
Because I always forget, here are some shots of the insides:
The second (and final) change for this version was to raise the neckline by an inch for a little more safety and to make it a little more wearable for work.
Now to my question, if you were going to put a little jacket or cardi over this for layering warmth, what pattern would you use and what colour? I am really having trouble pairing this with anything I currently have. Suggestions please!!
