I finally had a chance to take some photos of that yellow vintage dress I acquired by fate. I have to admit, though, after trying it on, that I
a. need to get an appropriate slip for said yellow dress (and not wear blue undies!) and
b. have to, as suspected, take in the seams on the bodice. Story of my life.
I have the top clipped in the images since the dressform is my size, just so you can get a better idea of how it will look once I figure out how to take in that organza at the top...
and a closeup of that beautiful embroidered applique:
I realized when I was putting it on the dressform that it has loops for a belt at the waist, but it didn't come with one! Thank goodness I've been building my collection lately, so I'm sure I have something that will work just fine. Adding this one to the pile of "needs alterations" in my studio...
