Number Four

I have a little secret about the fourth look.  *I ended up re-styling a dress I showed at my last RAW runway*  Not that people couldn’t recognize that fact themselves just by looking at the dress.  And in all fairness (to me), I did have every intention of making a NEW dress in a different fabric–even had it all cut out (it’s still sitting in pieces on my “sew these someday” pile).  The original idea was this:

The idea was to use this grey stretch suiting I have that has a maroon pinstripe.  Lovely fabric, but I was hesitant to use grey.  It was just so…..grey.  I know, like army green/brown and cream are fascinating colors.  Who knows what it was, but I ultimately decided I didn’t want to use the grey paired with the brocade looks.

So, anyway, this look was originally designed to be that fabulous slinky grey pinstriped dress with a plunging neckline, a brocade under-bust corset, spats and a tattered lace collar.  Of course, the spats took a hike.

I quickly decided to use the brown pinstripe dress instead of making the grey.  Well, maybe not quickly, since I went through the trouble of cutting the dress out, but the decision was made.

The first fitting went well–other than the fact that the corset was 2 sizes too large.  I’m not posting images of that fitting primarily because, well, boobs (ooo–I just opened my blog up to a whole new search category!).  It was discovered at the fitting that this model has more, shall we say, blessings up top than previous models who have worn the dress.  I had thoughts of a tank top for modesty’s sake (though I never really liked the idea too much).  It hadn’t occurred to me that we didn’t try the dress without a bra at that fitting, and luckily we were able to make it work without a modesty panel for the show.

So, after the fitting, I re-made the corset.  I love the under-bust corset–I’ve been wanting to make some for awhile but somehow hadn’t gotten around to it.  I have plans for many more.

Luckily, the dress fit like a glove already so no alterations were needed.

Onto the show!
