Today I spent the day at Alessandra’s working on Christie’s red Gotha dress. The dress diary has been updated. I had no pattern to work from on this dress, so I was guessing about the construction. As Alessandra pointed out, it should probably be cut more A-line to remove the bulk from the underarms. I’ll have to try that on the next version. I already committed to cutting the linen for this dress.
That’s fine. That’s what happens when you’re making it up as you go along!
