Jeanie's Dress From the Beginning

It all starts with a piece of muslin.


Draping the front panel.


Center front to princess seam, complete.


Each panel was cut out separately...


...to strategically place the pattern of the fabric on the dress.
Pinning the panels on the dress form as I worked.


The bottom of the sleeve reminds me of a Chinese lantern


It's all in the details.


...and when you can't get the pattern where you want it by repositioning the pattern piece, move the pattern. Applique works wonders.

This dress is for Jeanie Rapp. She is wearing it to tomorrow night's premier of Wild Black Yonder. A play by Lary Bloom.
