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!
