This week I tried to get a dress done for valentines day but failed miserably.
Its been a long time in the making. I've been desperate to copy Anthropologie's Nostalgic Asterisk's dress which is no longer available. Zooey Deschanel wears it on the first episode of New Girl. (My new favorite show!) So I had to have it.
I very crudely adjusted Vintage Vogue 8728 to get the basic shape. Cutting off the sleeve and widening the skirt about 8 inches at the side seams. I have started making the white piping for it, something I've never done before and I love the effect! It isn't a perfect knockoff but I really like the style and I can imagine running up a few of these for the summer.
I'm quite pleased at how similar it is coming out! I just need to get a bit of time to finish it.
Here's a rather blurry closeup of the fabric. What do you think? Close enough?
