Just a quick little update today as a dear, dear friend is in town this week for a class (can you believe she chose to take her class here in Ohio just to visit me when she could have taken it in Hawaii?! That’s a good friend!) so I’ve been spending my nights with her. I’ve managed to putz around with my dress a little bit and look at how it’s turning out! I’m frankly pleased as punch!
I concentrated the border print fabric to make the roses climb up the bodice and down from the waistline. I saw this on a vintage pattern illustration and have wanted to try it ever since. I was at first a little worried about placing so much business there since it draws the eye, but cinched with a belt, it looks great on!
All that’s left now is some hand work to the inside including hemming and inserting the zipper! Woo hoo! If you haven’t yet, do tell me what your vote is for the Forth of July dress!
‘Till next time!
