9 Panel Dress

Whoo-boy… another work intensive dress. Love it, love it…but why do my dresses seem to take longer and longer? Could it be that Susan keeps getting more creative, setting more and more intense challenges for me in terms of design, digitizing, creative hooping, and fabrics? 3 separate overlays that needed to be fused! SUSAN!!??!!

Before I get to it, first a pic of the snaggletoothed youngest diva in her princess gown. If you look carefully at the right side of her smile, you can see that there seems to be a whiter spot. That is a baby tooth that she has been working at so hard over the past few days that she bruised her gum!!! Did not matter what I said to her, she was determined to get that tooth out. She’s relentless. It did finally come out about an hour after this pic.

And here is the dress that has been holding me hostage in the basement. It is a 2 piece, 9 panel. Fitting tomorrow to fine-tune the fit. The cotton underbodice is just serged right now…I will bind the armscyes and the neck after tomorrow.

The sequins still have the plastic covering that I put over them to embroider. I will remove that when I am done wrestling with this dress. The dress has a full separating zipper.

Here is the bodice front.

Like my toes?

Tomorrow I fit the bodice jacket as well. Thinking about a different hemline for it. We will see what all concerned think.

Time for bed.

    Beautiful! I Love the colors and the knots on the bottom of the panels.
