Dress in progress!

Green Custom Dress 004

1950sdressblog-007Well, here’s the dress after today’s work session. It doesn’t have sleeves or cuffs yet (those are coming in the next installment!), and the skirt is, of course, much too long; but I’ll trim it down to size after it’s had some time to adjust to being attached to the bodice. Lisette very kindly let me pin a sleeve on her in the photo to the right, so you can get a hint of what’s coming. 1950sdressblog-011


It’s only pinned up the back at this point (we were all too excited to see what it looked like on a doll!). After the sleeves go in, I’ll work on a proper set of closures.
