I'm starting with my first dress.


Because I'm still not totally confident in my patternmaking skills I learned at both North Carolina A & T State University and Parsons School of Design, I am going to start with a commercial pattern.

The 1st pattern project will be a Vogue 1174.

I love this dress! Its classic, its sexy, its sophisticated, its girly, and when I put my twist on it, it'll be MissPrettyperfect! Vogue described this sheath as, "close-fitting, strapless, lined dress has seam details, piping trim, princess seams, foundation with boning, side front pockets, pleats and darts, above mid-knee length". My predicted twist (alterations) will be to add a sort of exposed ruffled petticoat.

So stay tuned!
