Amy underconstruction

front under construction
This is I think the last dress Amy wears in the play ( I still have a few others to make for her).  This one is still under construction.  This is the bodice piece it will have a skirt that uses this embroidered fabric and it will also have a flounce on the skirt in coral orange same fabric I used on Meg's last dress that I showed.   It will also have a sort of gathered ruched bustle but not a true bustle.  This dress has caused me issues in making it the patten did not come out as the manufacturer designed it to ie to big in the waist.

Thus you see the tape measure around the waist me figuring out what it would look like either belted or gathered to take in the extra fabric that I DO NOT LIKE AT ALL.  I have added 3 inches to the bodice area in height at the bosom to make it more modest and I may add a ruffle or a pleated area there still as it is still not to wear i want it for a modest dress.
I am in the process of adding puff sleeves the pattern had no sleeves.  By the time I am done constructing this dress it will look nothing like the original pattern which sort of makes me happy as I did not like lots of it and am modifying all those parts to my liking.  The bead trim you see I did not hand bead could of but did not.  Found it thrift shopping for 50 cents a few weeks back and instantly thought of this dress.  There will be a bright colored flounce right below the waist so I think it will stand out nicely.

  1. I like the idea of a ruffle at the top. I think pleats might make it look a little severe.

  2. I just thought, would darts solve the waist problem? It would bring in the waist without creating the bulkiness of gathers or a belt.
