Scrap Happy April

Last year about this time, I made a slew of Melba Dresses. This was the first one. It was too big to begin with, and is unwearable now. I wish I could alter it, but the neckline is gigantic. There’s not much I can do about that.

But I love this fabric! So I decided to make good on my long-held promise to sew myself some underwear. I was hoping to get a bra out of this dress, too. Alas, there is not enough fabric. Can you believe that? I’m also planning to make a bra and underwear set out of my Paranormal Day dress fabric scraps. I’ll post updates!

  1. Love that fabric! I can see why you wanted to make good use of the leftovers. Regarding the dress: would it be possible to put inserts into the outer edges of the neckline to keep it more securely on your shoulders? It would be good if something could be done to salvage such a fun garment.

  2. It’s great fabric. There is not enough $ in the world to get me to sew my own underwear. LOL No, not even a million bucks. But I look foward to see what that fabric looks like as underwear.

  3. The fabric looks so good, and I hope you get wonderful underwear from it. I’ve been fascinated by the idea of making my own too, but considering I haven’t tried out sewing yet, well… I’ll look forward to your updates for now.
