I hope you all have had a lovely Easter holiday this past weekend.
While there were some early morning storms by afternoon the weather had warmed up enough to debut my #EasterSpringDress2017.
Tracy Reese Vogue 1397
For my own project, I wanted a very classic 50’s style Easter dress. I decided to make Tracy Reese Vogue 1397, while a modern pattern I felt had that classic look I was going for.
For the fabric I had my followers choose between a bold pink rose print and a monochromatic blue rose print. Blue was chosen as the overall favorite, which I’m happy with since I don’t usually make a lot of blue dresses.
The project seemed real straight forward, though I found the low back neckline caused a lot of drooping issues. I ended up making 4 different muslins of the bodice top and am still not 100% happy with the final results of how the bodice sets.
Despite the issues with the bodice, the overall look of the dress is lovely.
As I said earlier I really like the vintage inspired look of this dress, even more so when I paired it with vintage accessories.
While it may not be my best make the end result is exactly the look I was going for.
