Along the way…

I took some photos while making my latest dress, appropriately named The Paris Dress for its french blueprint pattern inside. Final photos of the dress will be up soon!

Brass Zipper Winner!

The devil is in the details

So, I’m about three steps away from finishing this dress (zipper, inside lining, hem) AND I’m torn on what type of zipper to use, brass or full black. The brass zipper has kinda been one of the signature traits of my dresses, but this one has other fun details (like print on the shoulders).

What’s your pick?? Which do you think works better?

Here’s the front of the dress:

Brass Zipper (I promise everything will be straight when I actually sew it in)

Black Zipper (Again, I swear, straight!)
