Fabric panel dress
Initially I didn't know what I would do with this fabric but I just couldn't resist making McCalls 5423 again. This is the fourth time. After the response to last week's dress I decided to add the same drape detail.
I wish I could have placed the front skirt in such a way that the design would be totally symmetric but the design is uneven and don't lend itself to symmetry unless I put a seam done the front--I'd rather not.
The back is turning out better than I thought it would although I don't love the design in the center back of the bodice, but I can live with it. I just need to decide if I want a drape on the back neck or not. What do you think? I'm also not sure if that necklace is going to work. I have one that I'd think would be perfect but don't ask me where it is because I don't know!
BTW the fabric came from Walmart and was $2 per panel!
