So, the first version of this dress was pretty swell for a no-sew, but it’s time to take this frock in a totally different direction!

First, I unpicked most of the neck from the rest of the dress.  Then, I made a big chop!

Just like that!
Just like that!

 

Next, I plopped my new frock on my dress form and began getting it perfectly fitted!

It's shaping up nicely, eh?

I actually ended up having to remove the pins from one side of my form in order to get it off the form, but that’s no problem.  I just repinned it after.

No biggie!
No biggie!

 

Each side went under the needle, then I got to work on closing up that raw edge at the top!

Pinned!
Pinned!

 

Whirrrrrr!
Whirrrrrr!

 

Getting my new halter strap all closed up!

And just like that, my new dress was ready for the World Premiere of Cinema Purgatorio!

Red Carpet Worthy!

It's quite terrific!

You can and should check out this terrific film right here!  Oh…and here’s the trailer!

Of course I enjoyed schmoozing with the cast and crew.
