For our performance at the end of June, our teacher asked us to provide our clothes ourselves. There are some shops in Marseille or in Internet where we can buy dresses, or we could as the seamtress of the dance school to sew one.
In BOWF of April, I had seen this dress, which I wanted to make to weare at home during summer. So why not combine both?
Here is the result:
The belt has been purchased, not made by me.
The pants are the muslin of this one.
Whereas I don't intend to wear the pants, I do want the dress to last. So I was very carefull with the seams, finishing them with bias or using "English seams" (couture anglaise in French, you sew wrong side against wrong side, then turn over to have right side against right side and you sew to enclose the previous seam. It is a bit like the seams on jeans, but not applied. I don't know the English words for them). The satin bias was sewed with the machine and finished by hand and the beads ribbons were sewed by hand. Perfect job to watch some TV :-)
I hope the weather is as bright where you live as it is here!
