Outcome & Notes (Dress 004)

This shows the original concept drawing, plus the final garment.  If you scroll down further, there are also some notes on how I would make this dress differently if I were to remake it.

Improvements

I intially wanted this dress to have gathers in the waist (which is what my concept design shows), but in the end I changed the waist gathers to darts which end up looking like dart pleats.  I decided to try lining my dress differently to the way I usually do it and the result was a disaster. (As in the dress looks ok on the outside, but the inside and zip finish is dreadful).

However,  I really, really like this dress. It's currently my favourite.  If I were to remake it, I would use a soft denim (that didn't need lining) with the contrasting waistband and neckline made from a different patterned fabric.

In the image the waistband looks strange because the weight of my hands in the pockets is pulling it down at the sides.
