Initial stages-V8178

This is the initial stage of my journey to sew the perfect empire waist dress. I am happy to report that I am actually over 80% complete at this time. These are photos I took on Saturday and Sunday. Yesterday I made major headway but alas it was a holiday and spending time with DH was called for. In between I did some sewing. This morning, the first day of my vacation, I started sewing around 6:30 or 7:oo and stopped at 11:15 to go to CURVES. I am back now, just had a chicken salad sandwich on rye bread and water. Decided to take the time to at least post this information as well as download several photos from the camera.

Next on the agenda is a shower. Then back to the sewing room to finish my dress. I will post more along with photos of the dress. I had to do a lot of tweaking with this pattern, striving for perfection. Really I am striving for a good fit and this dress allowed me to hone some skills. Later!
