Anyhooo, I digress....
You all know I'm a huge Tadah fan and love testing for Lauren. It's always relaxed, fun and easy. So it was a no brainer that I'd be testing for The Tea Party Dress.
Firstly let me say OMG OPTIONS!! 4 different bodices, 4 different back styles, two arm heights, 3 sleeve options and two types of skirt.... I'm rubbish at math, so I'll let you do the math.... That's lots of different possibilities huh??
The best part of the dress? You top stitch your lining down while the dress is still flat and the back seams aren't done yet!! So much neater. The worst part? The procrastination that comes with choosing from the gazillion options available! Ha!! Spoiled for choice really!
I made a few different neck lines but once I made the scoop back I was completely and totally in love!! #thatback *heart heart heart*
Dress: V neck, scoop back, high arm, straight skirt.
A funny story about this dress - I didn't like it at all after I'd made it. Then she put it on and *sigh*
When I posted some test fit pics in the test group someone mentioned it gave them beach/French vibes so I grabbed her felt hat and the camera and we ran down to the beach quickly to get the last of the light and I would have to say these are the best photos I've ever taken... Ever!
L: boat neck, high arm, scoop back, straight skirt. R: scoop neck, scoop back, high arm, straight skirt
(Ps: that amazing handmade fabric tea set you can sort of spy there was made by the one and only ChookShed Designs)
I did manage a few other shots in between the tears!
All up I've made 7 dresses with two more on their way as soon as I find the perfect coordinate.
This has the boat neck, scoop back, mini cap sleeve, straight skirt.
