So instead of throwing things, crying and setting fire to the pattern in my kitchen....I immediately kicked into Plan B. See I knew that I had enough fabric left to recut a front pattern from my TNT dress pattern so I did. I did a pivot and slide to add some to the waistline and flare the skirt out a little ~ cut that sucker out and now may I present to you a v-neckline, a-line version of my TNT dress pattern.
This is a whispering piece, not a shouting piece...like my last dress.
I lined the dress and added piping to the neckline. The dress has my signature lace on the lining hem and the armholes are bound with black bias binding. It has a 20" invisible zipper in the back.
It will be a workhorse in my professional work wardrobe...cause I can always use a navy blue silk dress...the Vogue 9666 pattern will be given a quiet burial...tossed into the garbage. It does not deserve a large ceremonial affair since the promise of the pattern envelope never materialized.
Next up are the black linen pants. They are a wardrobe necessity...and then I will figure out what I'm going to make during the 4th of July weekend. I have a barbecue to attend (don't we all here in the States?) but most of my time will be my own...since the SO has to work.
...as always, more later...
