My Emerald Green Dress :-)


So this is the finished project. The pattern is a very easy Vogue. The fabric is a Ponte Knit from JoAnns. The fabric started out as white but in my attempt to dye it an emerald green it turned out this green color (the Rit Dye instructions said to use an evening blue but I used navy instead). I did realize there are several lessons learned in this project. 1) Some Very Easy Vogues are not very easy 🙂 2) Now that I know my bust cup size is not what I thought it was it is going to be very important for me to learn how to make the proper pattern adjustments in the bust area. 3) When choosing to dye my fabric make sure to dye all of the necessary pieces together so that I get a constant color. I am going to try this dress again in another color and with a few adjustments.
