I went to vote today so I wore red white and blue. This dress is my feeble attempt at the kate spade Jillian dress. I ruined one of my Jillians by spilling bleach on it so I cut it up to see how to make the little waist detail. I am so glad that I did because I would never have figured it out otherwise. One dress bites the dust but paves the way for many many more to be made!!!
Now that I know how to do it, I am planning several more dresses. I have seen this style on many vintage dresses and even have a dress pattern that has this waist treatment. Here are some of the adaptations i pinned on Pinterest of the Jillian style...they were actually first, I guess the Jillian is an adaptation of them!
