|| Modus Operandi || Bombshell Dress Revisited

 modus operandi 
|ˈmōdəs ˌäpəˈrandē; -ˌdī|noun ( pl. modi operandi |ˈmōdē; ˈmōdī|) [usu. in sing. ]
•a particular way or method of doing something, esp. one that is characteristic or well-established 
• the way something operates or works.

It's been almost one year since I first tried to tackle this dress.  My first attempt was very rushed as I only gave myself (from pattern cutting to finished dress) one week.  The results were definitely wearable, but not as quite as tailored as it should have been.  This muslin, of the same bodice bombshell pattern, is a work of love (spanning about three weeks of work and seven complete revisions).  

My goal is to continue revisiting this pattern as my skills continue to increase.  The bottom part of the dress is my first attempt at creating a muslin pattern.  I couldn't help myself!  I have a vision of this dress in my head and I figure that now is a great time to experiment with new techniques.
