Finally, my Prismatic Dress is done!
I decided I wanted a more frayed look around the edges so that it wouldn't be so in-your-face contrast-y. I wanted a more textured look. I am very familiar with how appliques are normally sewn on - set stitch length to 0 and use a very close zig-zag stitch. Not the look I was going for.
You also could perhaps interface the back of all of the pieces to get a cleaner edge on cut pieces, but I haven't tried it.
Detail of bodice.
Did I mention this dress has inside side seam pockets?!
When ordering, you can choose up to 5 different colors- 1dress color, 4 colors for bodice shapes, one which will be the hem color.
I'll still be posting/making samples for custom orders but like I've been saying...PDF time! I'm also going to have some guest posts going on in the near-future so don't really expect to hear from me until I am getting the pattern out to testers!
Since independent designing is now my full-time job, you can expect the pattern to get out to testers by mid-March! By contrast, the original pattern-tester date was June-ish. If all goes well, we could see the PDF out fully by June! How exciting!
