What I'm working on - Vogue 1314

My brother-in-law is getting married and the engagement party is next weekend.  I want a new dress to wear so I started surfing the web and blogs for inspiration.  I was checking out Wanett of Sown Brooklyn's blog and came across her post on Reese, Beckham and Wang.  While looking at the pictures I fell for this little sexy number by Tracy Reese.

 It automatically reminded me of Vogue 1314 by Tracy Reese, which I happen to have in my stash.

I'm thinking that with a pair of Spanx and some sucking in, hopefully I can pull this little number off.  This is my fabric choice.  I like the gold flecks that are all over the fabric.  It makes it look a little more dressier I think.

I purchased it from Jomar a couple of years ago.  I'm not sure about the keyhole and don't want to mess the dress up.  There is enough fabric to make the bow.  I don't know.  Should I do the keyhole or just the bow?  Let me know your thoughts.  With a little luck I'm hoping to get it finished by the end of the week.  I've got the gathers done so far.  Hopefully I can get a little more done tonight, we'll see.  Once Upon A Time is getting ready to come on in 10 minutes and I don't want to miss it.

Happy Crafting???

Can't really give an answer pro or con on the keyhole, but I think the bow will be a winner either way and it will be a gorgeous dress.

DO THE KEYHOLE!!!!!!!!!!!! Super sexy and yet understated at the same time. Perfect for a wedding.

I really like Vogue 1314 with your fabric choice.

I think you should follow Rhonda's advice and add the bow too ;-)

Good luck!

Either way...that dress is HOT! I personally like the keyhole and the bow. It's different and CUTE!

The keyhole looks nicer in my opinion.

I'm curious Andrea, did you complete the dress in time for the engagement party?
