This weekend I started working on Vogue 1190, the Tracy Reese ruffle dress. My cousin Lisa is getting married in August and I needed something to wear and this dress has been on my sewing list for a while. The fabric I'm using is a navy ombre stripe by Marc Jacobs from Elliott Berman Textiles. It's a cotton/lycra sateen with a subtle stripe.
Friday I cut the dress out and Saturday I started sewing the back pieces together and getting the ruffles ready for hem. On Sunday I stitched all the darts and pleats on the bodice, hemmed half the ruffles and attached them to the bodice, cut and sewed on the waistband piece.
Here is a picture of where I left off:
