12 Jackets/Coats in 2011

Just before christmas I made a dress for my niece Michelle. This is the design she drew.
And this is the finished dress. The dress has a corselette fitted to the hips. The boning runs on the princess seams of the corselette and both the corselette and the dress are lined. You could run, jump do anything in this dress and feel confident that it won't fall down. Michelle did jump around to test it during the fittings and it didn't budge. The corselette has a waist stay and uses hook and eyes as closures on the side seam, the dress uses an invisible zipper. Because of the corselette there was no pressure on the invisible zipper. The bodice also has beading on the side gathers. I am pleased with this dress. It took a lot of hours to plan, draft and sew and I enjoyed doing it.
