Scallops Wrapped In…

Well my scallops aren’t wrapped in anything but I’m wrapped in them!

After my previous post about my ill fitting bodice I had to practice my least favorite stitch – the frog. “Rippit Rippit” I shortened the bodice by a couple inches, took in the sides by an inch or so and fixed up the darts. I nixed the pockets because they threw off the pattern on the skirt.

After all the work I am overwhelmingly pleased with my finished product.

 

Here is how the back of the wrap dress looks.

 

This boy and I rode our bikes over to a cute little historic square for these pics.

After all that work sometimes I start to wonder if sewing is worth it but once you get the exact finished look you were dreaming of how could you ever want to stop?

    Wow, you really improved the fit of this dress. I love the wrap style, scallop detail on the neckline and your color choice. I hope you enjoy every moment of wearing it. Great job!!!

    Wow! Your adjustments made a huge improvement on an already cute dress. What pattern were you using for the wrap dress? Love the scallops in the neckline, and low V back neckline is a nice surprise. I wonder how the dress would look with scallops in the hem — a tad too much?

    What an adorable dress and the scallops are just perfect, especially with that fabric.

    I’m also amazed at your ability to ride a bike while in a dress. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do the same without getting arrested for indecent exposure :)
