Another Couple of Liberty 8728s

I don't think I've posted these yet — forgive the shaky pictures — but I made two other 8728s before I went to Australia: 



Here's the back view:

This is Liberty (of course) — Percy's Leaf (from Shaukat). 

And this, in Mike (also Liberty from Shaukat) — a closeup of the bodice (kind of a shadowy picture, sorry): 

And a shaky picture of the back:


I know I'm not done with 8728 just yet — it makes up SO nicely! It's so easy to wear! — but I'm thinking it might be time for another shot at the Heidi … what do you all think?

  1. I might need to come over for a tutorial, I made this dress and while the zipper is perfection – the rest of the dress didn’t turn out so well. Your versions are so lovely! Maybe it’s my shape that’s made the dress all wonky?


  2. So pretty! I’ve finally given in and bought that pattern after seeing all your beauties. I’m not sure it’ll be the right shape for me but I can’t wait to try anyway.


  3. I’ve been loving your blog for a while and finally have to ask a couple questions. Do you make the shoulder pads for this dress? I can’t stand shoulder pads. If you didn’t, did you make any adjustments to the shoulders? Also, I am really short-waisted and I wondering if this particular bodice would not lend itself to shortening.


  4. Thanks Anne! I did not make the shoulder pads (I never do) and that’s probably why I adjusted the shoulders down two sizes. šŸ™‚

    I’m not sure about shortening the bodice. If you’re short from the shoulders to the bust (high-busted?) then it would be tricky … otherwise I’d just take it out of the waist piece and hope for the best.

    Hope this helps!
