A new project

Yesterday, I cut out pieces for the pattern of a dress I am making based on a late 1950's, early 1960's piece that was absolutely falling apart, and about 2 inches shy of fitting me in both waist and bust.
I decided to pay homage to this vintage wonderfullness by taking the dress and making it my own... I am adding gores at every seam and shaping the back and front to be more unique. I am pretty excited about taking something peachy and sweet and making it racy and red.

I took some awesome pictures, and then, being myself, left them... but it's NaBloPoMo so I'll get em up soon.
