Redesigning The Silhouette Dress..

Hey Everyone!  I'm back with another Silhouette Dress. The last silhouette dress I made came out great but was entirely to big for me.

I've always wanted to try to recreate it but didn't have the nerve. Well now, I'm going for it.  As I said before, this year is for experimenting and trying new things and stepping out of my comfort  zone.  I'm calling her, Jumeau.. That's twin in French, lol.. Getting a little Fancy on y 'all, Oui Oui..  THE DRESS The fabric is a blue-gray ponte' I received from a coworker who gave me a bag of fabric last year. This is just a test run until I really give it my all with an expensive fabric. I looked into my stash and pulled out on of the most basic
