This beautiful tartan bodice was custom commissioned by a client only in need of a bodice and belt. The client sent the tartan fabric and we happily sewed it up using our Emily dress pattern (sans the skirt obviously). The belt is made of embossed cotton velveteen and has tiny little waffling all over it. The texture complimented the primary hues of the tartan quite well.
I just loved this fabric as it was actually an intricately woven herringbone twill and had much detail to it besides the plaid weave itself. I think the client made an excellent choice with this custom piece and I thoroughly enjoyed making it!
