First, I want to say I am glad I participated in this swing dress sew-along, so here's a big shout out to Casey for hosting this great project. It was worth it to me to make two of these dresses, I was learning so much from making the first dress that I didn't want to stop diving deeper into my own fit issues. Although, I made two, they are not fitted alike. I wanted this yellow rayon dress to look a bit more old fashioned. Old fashion, for me, translates a lower waistline, a bit of a puffy sleeve, and a little wiggle room. So, I redrafted the sleeves and added a bit more ease to them. I also raised the armholes, thanks that feels better, now I can raise my arms over my head. These pictures were taken at our local ice cream parlor. It's a great place for a grilled cheese sandwich. Overall, I am happy with this dress. I think I will be smiling and wearing it often! Now to find some comfortable shoes and a hot pink, bead necklace. Spring is coming!! Hooray!
Have a Fabulous vintage day!
