The Ball Dress, The Sister and The RemakeTuesday, July 16, 2013
Over time the dress grew a little tired and the little sister grew too. They were no longer the perfect match that they once were.
This is how I came to start unpicking my sister's ball gown. We scoured my Burda magazines looking for options. The skirt was carefully hand washed, ironed and unpicked some more.
We settled on burda 12-2011-102 . She traced and I cut. Initially there was going to be a muslin, but that became the lining as deadlines loomed closer. Hemming was fine line between taste and daring.
Finally, it was finished.
