Myriad hours of sewing later here she is, my Copy Cat Valentino!
I discussed my planning and fitting process here.
|I was chasing light to get my photos and you can not see my cute clamp hat.|
Just before I was able to hem the dress I explained my construction process here.
One major change I made to the original design was to make the white lace flounces detachable.
|Many little snaps|
I achieved this by adding bias binding to the upper portion of the flounce and then adding snaps to connect to the cuff lining.
My reasoning for adding the option to detach the flounces was that I felt it made the dress more wearable. And really what girl does not like options?
I am still in love with my Mood Fabrics and so happy they no longer reside in a bag and are a beautiful dress to cherish for years to come.
