Throwback Thursday post – to 2 days ago!
After I wrote about the Serendipity Studio Diane Kimono Dress recently, I realized that I left out a modification I made to the neckline. And I think it could be helpful to anyone who prefers a higher neckline and V-crossover.
In the pics above, the dress on the left has the original neckline. On the right, the dress I just made has a higher neckline.
The change is very easy:
- I extended the shoulder by 1″ at the neckline, front and back.
- And I raised the back neckline as well.
- The new front edge is trued into the original pattern at the bottom edge.
- The final step was to re-draw the neckline facings to match.
One last note – I didn’t use a drawstring in the waistband of any of my versions of this dress. I just inserted 1″ elastic, and, on my early versions, added a ‘faux’ drawstring, tacked to the band.
Hope this is helpful – have a great Thursday! Coco
