I am happy to say I am 'almost' finished...well I AM finished with the dress, but I still have the jacket to make. My dress form is being delivered today...hip, hip hoorah for birthdays and I really feel as though I have my sewing mojo back.
So without further adieu...here are a couple of photos.
The big flare of the skirt.
The hem...I found this sweet binding tape in my vintage stash and thought it would be a perfect way to finish the hem. Hubby helped me Sunday morning to get the hem straight.
I also took the shoulders in as well as the front seam. I can't wait to have a dress form
(which may have just been delivered to my front door) so I can really do proper adjustments in the future.
It is my one day off today, and I have been busy cleaning the house all day. I am off to veg out for awhile. I will do a photo shoot of me IN the dress sometime soon.
