The Red & Gold Dress // 2

Day two of Ellebay’s new dress project. Here’re a few snapshots of us putting our bodice together, and doing a first fitting for it!

Sewing a stiff material onto the existing bodice pieces to add structure to the bodice.

The bodice after my fitting. Changes included lowering the height of the neckline, deepening the V, and adjusting the fit of the waist.

A blurry photo of my mum, carrying out the alterations for the bodice! Here, she’s cutting the bodice to shorten it to my natural waist.

Ironing the bodice seams down.

And voila! There’s no boning yet (you can tell from the wrinkles along my bust), but we’re quite happy with the fit thus far.

Until next time!
