I have a more romantic, soft feel for the #DIYWHITECOLLECTION and although it won’t all be soft and romantic, there is something girly about being in white or off-white that makes me feel more delicate and pretty. I love the pieces I have made so far and can’t wait to show them off to you. More info on the pattern, my fabric choices and modifications below.
DIY SILK DRESS PATTERN INFO & MODIFICATIONS
This VOGUE 1554 dress is so fantastic. I was really attracted to the use of multiple fabrics and I knew that I had a few pieces of fabric in my stash that I could use. I wanted to do the lace panel for sure because I love the way you can see legs, it adds a little bit of sexiness to the dress. The texture of the second panel was a nice touch and I used it for the bodice yoke too. The body of the dress and tie belt are a CHALLIS I had in my stash too.
The only thing I did differently was to gather the dress vs creating pleats as shown on the pattern. My fabric was so lightweight and after testing the pleat it didn’t hold well enough for me so I went with soft gathers instead.
