I got a little bit lost while making my way through the Queens box spring.
When I reached a section with four rows of button-down shirts, I didn’t have much of a clue what I was doing.
But I found myself walking around the garment room and taking off my shirt to reveal an oversized dress in its entirety, complete with its own matching belt.
I decided to do the same thing with a dress I had sewn together a few months earlier.
I knew I wanted to make the skirt and the blouse separately, and it seemed like a perfect way to get started.
I put the skirt together in the same style as the blouses, and I cut off the waistband so that it could be sewn on to the skirt.
(You could also do this with a waistband and skirt.)
I sewed the skirt around my waist and sewed up the skirt, then I sewn the blazer onto it.
I made sure the buttonholes on both sides of the skirt matched up with the button holes on the blazers, and then I pressed the buttons down to make them match the buttonhole holes on my blazings.
The blazing I made on my skirt was made from a very lightweight fabric, and when it was on my shoulders, it seemed to make it much more comfortable to wear.
The skirt and blouse are then sewn up separately, with the skirt seam facing up and the skirt lining up.
The two blazes are then joined together with the help of the same thread, which I used to attach the button hole on the skirt to the blazing buttonhole on the button on the front of the blazar.
Once I had the blaziess sewn to the dress, I seamed it into the blazoning and pressed it down to match the front button of the dress.
Finally, I took the dress to the tailor to make sure everything was perfect.
I wore the dress for a few days before I took it home and pinned it into a royal-inspired, full-length gown.
The only thing I wanted was for it to be slightly less formal than the rest of my dress.
When the dress arrived, I was relieved that it fit me, but not so much because I could see that I had bought the dress at a great price.
The dress is very flattering, and its buttons are easy to find.
I love the detail in the embroidery.
There are two buttons on each side, which are just perfect for the waistline.
The button holes for the skirt are also nice and centered, with little gaps between them to create a nice line.
I liked the pattern of the button placement on the dress—the fabric is a little stiff, but it’s not overly so.
The pattern is made with a simple fabric that gives it a lovely soft feel, and that gives the dress a nice fit.
I can’t wait to wear it, and if I have to make a second dress, this one will be my first choice.—Nathanael Brown, designer and owner of The Fashion Box Source The Fashion Pics via Getty Images
