Frankendress, V2....

After making the aforementioned adjustments, Voila! (...and please say it as I would...'Vee-Oil-Ay!')


The fabric is cheap for a reason.  Its super stiff even on the bias.
I will be doing yet ANOTHER version in a nicer fabric that is a little more forgiving...

But some of the more pressing issues were taken care of....
See!   Its not NEARLY as..uummm... revealing... as V1!.

... and trimming the back pattern piece was definitely beneficial!
I'm toying with going slightly above knee length, I think it makes the dress a little more casual and wearable.

Anyway.... there you have it.

Holla!

I think it's time for you to reconsider the subtitle of your blog. A beginner sewist would not have the skills to pull this off. I think it looks wonderful! You got the shape around the waist just right -- it isn't shapeless but it isn't body-hugging... looks great with the way the front drapes.

Your inspiration garment is inspiring me! Can I also say that I get a much better picture of your garments when you are wearing them in your photos? You've got awesome curves, girl, even better than your form. Show 'em off!
