Asymmetrical Neckline Dress

Hello everyone,
I am back after a long silence, once again busy life and low mood for blogging but I've been so active in Instagram and made some garments that I am excited to share with you.
This asymmetrical neckline dress is one of the garments, I made it especially to wear in my dear niece wedding in London few weeks ago. It was a great wedding, both bride and groom were gorgeous, she looked so radiant and beautiful πŸ’–πŸ’–

Back to the dress, I used the especial printed cotton linen that I bought in my trip to Singapore last year. I had three yards, I used 2.25 yards for this dress and used the leftover to make a matching necktie for dear husband. I will post the necktie separately after this.

I modified two Burdastyle patterns to make this dress. Dress pattern 10/2015#124 for the bodice and Godet Pencil skirt pattern 08/2012#112 for the skirt.

The sewing process started with a muslin and fitting ( I always make a muslin for difficult dress). My first plan was to make the skirt as a godet skirt exactly like the skirt pattern but I didn't like it. So, I omitted the godet and made a pencil skirt.

The dress was fully lined with silk satin, I made facings for the front and back neckline from the same fabric and continue the rest with silk satin.
The dress has back zipper and back slit skirt, princess seamed, asymmetrical neckline and midi length. Also, I added a big bow for the accessory. I made the bow separately and hand sewn directly on the left side waistline.

Here are some of the processes, I sewn the front and back pieces completed with neckline facings.
Followed by attached the lining after I sew the front and back dress right sides together. Then carefully sew the back slit skirt. I hand sewn the slit and the hem to avoid mess and ruin the dress. As shown in the pictures below,
And I am happy with the result. Forget to mention, I secured the end of the slit with double interfacing before I lined the dress.

And the whole dress, front and back completed with a big bow. The bow was lined with silk satin, hope you can see a little bit shine of silk satin popping up 😊
The wrong side views of the dress front and back. I used the wrong side of silk satin facing my body because I couldn't stand the shiny part of the satin.
Here is the closer views of the asymmetric neckline, back side and inner dress.
And the closer look of the lining of upper bodices, front and back.

Last three pictures of the dress on me, front and back views.



That's it for today post everyone. Thank you for reading and see you soon in a matching necktie post that I made for dear husband.


Happy Sewing!

  5. Once again, an exquisite garment inside and out. Your sewing is always done so carefully, and is a pleasure to look at. I love your husbands matching tie. I know you have been busy, so I hope you mean that you have had no energy left to blog. To me a low mood means feeling very low and down, and I hope that is not the case. If it is, please be kind to yourself until it passes.
