Fembot Nipple Darts
My Trip to Disney in 2014 is well documented in my blog. Less well documented is the dresses I wore. I only have this one here of the Honey Do Dress, a fabric covered in white Daisies, bee hives and bees, and a few of my Micky Dress, as shown below.
The Pattern I used was Butterick 6094
Absolutely a dream to work with, super easy. I love patterns like this, with a modest neckline, but a little flair to allow one to show one's creativity.
For the back of the Honey Do dress I used a blue linen facing to compliment the centers of the daisies, and on the Mickey I used two big black buttons and a red on red mickey mouse fabric from Joanns.
Actually I was quite proud of these dresses, and they were my go-to nice dresses when going out.
Then it happened. Wearing the Honey Do dress, my Honey Bunny got a weird giggly look to his face and I immediately knew.
|She feels it, she feels the pain of the nipples.|
The bust darts on this thing! I sewed them so that they ended at the nipples, which, even with a sweater makes it look like Im, er... excited. You know what Im talking about. Darn french darts.
Well, now that I knew about it I cant ignore it. I was so mad! So much work, such cute outfits and I couldnt wear them. I briefly entertained seamripping and attempting a less nipple-tastic bodice, but eh. I was uninspired.
|It let all the Air out of me. hehe|
Since I dug the peeled back look of the back view I really racked my brain for a way to incorperate it into the skirt. And I got it. Exposed pockets! Boom!
So I cut off the peeled backs in square shapes, applied them to the sides of the dress-turned-skirt and BOOM.
Two new circle skirts with cute exposed pockets.
