I made a dress for me! My 7 year old has been reading every book he can get his hands on about ancient Greece and Rome and I think that’s what had me dreaming about a full, drapey dress like this. Remake it in white and I’ll be right out of Clash of the Titans ( the awesome 1981 version I grew up on, of course- I haven’t seen the new one.)
Amazingly I had the perfect crinkly orchid fabric in my stash, gleaned from the remnant pile at G Street Fabrics in Washington D.C. before we moved. I used quilting cotton and some twill for the belt. All supplies on hand and the whole thing completed in a day and a half- how often does that happen?
I didn’t make any special adjustments to the dress to accommodate my belly- the fullness of the style was enough. I’m hoping I can keep the dress in my repertoire after baby makes her appearance. Hopefully I’ll be tying the belt a little tighter soon!
