I am so thrilled to share this with you! Billie Jean went to Vegas, baby!
Never would i have thought for a second that there would be a Billie Jean dress all the way over in the US, let only Vegas, i totally squealed with delight, when Meg sent through her photos. I
have to admit though, Billie Jean was totally destined for Vegas!
I kindly asked if Meg she would be happy to try out the pattern for me, and i knew she would come through with the goods... i bugged her the whole way through, i was sooo excited to see her final dress! And i couldn't wait to see Billie Jean on someone else, especially someone as gorgeous as Meg, she totally rocks it!
She chose a fabulous shiny shantung and a striking striped cotton for the lining.
The contrasting fabric looks amazing.
I love the fact that Meg ran with the idea that the sewing pattern is completely versatile and is easily adaptable for it to be modified and experimented with. Modifying dress 2 of the sewing pattern, Meg changed up the skirt from the gathered skirt to a extremely flattering circle skirt, which gives the dress a totally new look. Enough though the dress is vintage inspired, Meg's version shows just how great it can look, with more of a modern twist, with a shorter hem length.
Check out all the details of Meg's fabulous version of the Billie Jean dress 2 and all the fabulous things she has made over on her blog: megmadethis.
