Sorry for the horrible quality and the dirty mirror, but I’ve been wanting to share my progress for some time now and can’t get someone else to take the picture.
The back of Maria’s dress is all done! The front is too, but that’s not as interesting as the back. It comes down waaaaaay lower than I’d intended, but I don’t care! I’m not redoing the entire thing just for that. When the sleeves and lining get put in it’ll (hopefully) sit a lot better.
Oh, and because of the slight stretch of the illusion fabric on the back (yeah, I’m not talented or patient enough to make it a true backless dress), NO ZIPPER NEEDED! I just have to be careful when putting it on/taking it off. Huzzah!
wow, it’s so pretty!! the illusion fabric is a pretty ingenious solution, too! i just looove me some low back dresses. XD
this is really amazing work, though. and it’s so fun to watch your progress. great job!!
