I spent allll Friday working on this little disaster-piece... it doesn't look bad on the outside minus loose threads, but it's so dodgy-ly made
[I call it Catharis... it is based a little on my name meaning. "katharos or kathairein" means pure. Catharis is a little different though, it means purification but generally of one's emotions. It's a term used in Greek plays. ^w^]
Anyways, a very cheaply made dress... Pop Top black fabric with torchon lace trim. (And calico interfacing which doesn't line up properly, told ya, dodgy!!) Wearing under it a top I found in op shop and my petticoat from Dragon's Blood.
As the picture says, it's inspired by Moi-même-Moitié dress as shown in corner. It was originally WAYYYYY too big, even though I shirred the crap out of the back. A bit of elastic and waistband ties did the trick.
Overall, I guess I'm really happy with it. I made it without a pattern!! ^w^
I'd love to make more dresses later... more professional than this, lol
