Afternoon Appointment, Version 2

Molly is the dressmaker and designer at The Enchanted Dress Shop. She designs girly and frilly outfits her customers call confections. Molly’s personal style is much simpler. Like Julie she prefers classic, simple styles. This chemise was made from the same pattern that Julie’s dress was made from. Instead of the elastic which shaped Julie’s dress at the waistline, a slight curve was made on the pattern from underarm to hipline. At the hipline a 1/4″ ribbon was hand stitched into place. A small bow was stitched into place and then tacked to the side. Slightly transparent red glass seed beads were used for the pocket book and earrings to complete the look.

The dress is made of 100% cotton backed with white poly organza. The organza added a nice touch and keeps the chemise silhouette looking it’s best. The neckline and armholes were finished with bias strips of nylon tulle. At the back there is a placket finished in bias cut organza onto which snaps are sewn.
