Next Up: Ombre Chiffon Dress
The musical theme this time around is Classic Country, so I felt that it must have a flouncy skirt. Right? When I came across McCalls 4414, I knew it was the one. That skirt has EIGHT gathered panels. I ran out of fabric around 6, but I think that's ok. I don't want to get buried in chiffon.
I found this amazing green ombre chiffon at B&J.
Aren't the colors gorgeous? I'm using the pale green at the top and the darker at the bottom.
Off to sew! Next time I say I'm going to whip up a complicated chiffon dress under a deadline, please talk some sense into me.
P.S. I think I was subliminally influenced by this video of Tammy Wynette wearing a flouncy green chiffon dress.
