This one was a breeze to put together. I would actually say this one is more like the original design than my first one. I did some fitting adjustments: I brought in the bodice gather at the underarm about an inch and lowered the front of the raglan sleeve at the gather about an inch. Helped with fit monumentally.
PPP #2 vintage flower seeersucker
Here is #2 of 3 in the sew-along.
This one is made from a vintage flower seersucker I got in a vintage store a few months ago. I knew I would not have enough material for the whole dress, and I remembered I had this *great* solid seersucker leftover from a project long ago. What I didn’t anticipate was the lack of enough of each for the back. But, through some fancy and clever piecing (staying on the grain, w00t) I was able to make a rather nice design of it.
As usual, more finished photos on the NVL site, and construction is on the blog.
