1950's halter dress
It was grey and wet, yesterday when I wore my red version of Marilyn's, The Seven Years Itch, dress. So we didn't get much chance to make pictures and I am not looking to happy either, in the ones we did get to make. Not only because of the bad weather but also because the dress rapidly became to wide when I wore it. It made me look baggy and I felt horrible. Lucky enough, there are so many people in good and not so good costumes at Castlefest, that I don't think anyone really noticed, but me.
I will sew in a dart in the top of the dress to take it in slightly and reinforce the midriff section extra with interfusible lining.
