Not certain where or when my sewing inertia was overcome but I have been productive lately!
I need new DRESSES for work! I'm tired of getting up at "o'dark:30" and trying to find, iron and don multiple garments in an effort to look presentable (if not fab!). So dresses are my new best friend.
Now I do love a good DVF-inspired wrap dress - so I reached into my stash and pulled out a piece of Mood-divinely-soft-geometric-cotton-knit and Butterick 4976....
and here's the finished garment. The only change I made to the pattern was to NOT attach the self-belt so I would have more belting options.
....with the self-belt
....and then with a black patent belt (I love me my patent).
The only other alteration was to add a little elastic trim to the inside of each bodice piece to keep the front from "gapping" - it seems to have worked!
I've been working on a couple of more garments so I will post my progress soon!
