Yes Virginia it is a dress!

Unhemmed but complete

Well the dress is finally complete. This photo of the dress does not show that it is hemmed but got it hemmed before I fell into bed last night!!

The dress does not look very flattering hanging! My DH said wow, this looks big! It does! But when on it fits well. Though I will wear a belt as the models wear in some of the versions shown on pattern envelope. I am even debating making the sash that is a design option with this pattern.

I hope to wear it later this week to work.


  1. Yay! Clothes do look big on hangers, because they are flat. Totally different on a round body. Very pretty dress. Love the fabric combination.

  2. Great job finishing your dress, pretty fabric combinations, can't wait to see it on.

  3. Pretty dress, I love the colors, I can't wait to see it on you.

  4. I agree, garments look so much better on us than on the hanger. Very nice fabric combination.

  5. Very springy! Hope to see it on you when you wear it to work.

  6. Linda - thanks for coming over and posting on my stuff looks terrible on the hangers. When the debutante committee comes to approve the dresses for the girls, I'm always making excuses. Even my cute little svelt girls' dresses look horrible. But then we didn't make them to look great on the hanger , so I try not to be too hard on myself for that!
