So the rough idea for the red overdress is like this. Off we go to see how it works out!
I stitched the finished overdress shut just below the hands to try it on.
When I lie awake at night I enjoy brainstorming what I will do to resolve this or that problem. I did try folding and pleating the gold underskirt in various ways but I don’t like the result at all. I think it might be better if it were simply narrower altogether. I will probably cut a new one entirely, as the existing one is quite cool and might have a good use in a different context.
