Roxanne in Washington DC
Huge congrats to Roxanne for finishing this awesome lavender chiffon beauty! It took weeks (okay, maybe months) of hard work - but WOW was it ever worth it! Roxanne wore this to her cousin's wedding in Washington DC and surprised her whole family with her new sewing skills. After fitting the dress lining in muslin twice to account for the gaping that sometimes occurs at the neckline when a dress goes from symmetrical to asymmetrical, Roxanne draped the chiffon directly onto the dress form and then gathered the excess at the shoulder to create a chiffon flower. The draped shoulder was then finished using a rolled edge. Look out Michelle Obama!!!
