Vogue 2494 Black Brocade Dress Report #1
Above is from the front of the pattern envelope.
Kitchen island cleared off, cleaned up, ready to cut fabric.
Detail of the fabric used for this project.
Construction of the larger pieces begins.
Back of the bodice and top of the skirt. Putting them together involves meshing together fabric that has been darted, seamed, and eased.
Here it is going together. The union of the bodice and the back skirt is an important seam. The other seams up until this point were simple. The fabric is slippery, so I pinned it completely.
Here it is. So far so good!
Neck facing prepared and seamed, ready to go in.
