Axelgirl competed in what may have been her last competition this summer. She is a Senior in High School, and between guard, honors and AP classes, there isn't any time. Coach and I wanted her to have a fantastic dress. Here is what we started with, and what we ended up with :)
First Coach sent me some links of dresses she liked. From there, I used some line drawings of bodies and sketched out a few ideas. Here were the some of the original drawings and modifications.
Next I drew up pattern revision one, and made the front bodice. Even pinned to my dress form which is too big, you can see that the original mesh insert was too low. Marked it up with a sharpie, then made a new pattern. Axelgirl was at camp this week so I was texting her pictures and progress as well.
