Drumroll please, it is complete
Here I am wearing the dress, using the mirror in the bathroom for taking the photo shots. I found red buttons!!! These have to be vintage as I have not bought red buttons in a couple of years.
I have mixed feelings about these sleeves. You can see how they hang when my arm is held down at side as in the first picture. Holding my arm out so you might be able to see the pleats at the hemline. I thought I should take a shot of my hand in the pocket. I like the pockets in this dress. I really like the fit of the dress and look forward to wearing it soon.
Wrinkles are present as it has not gotten it's final press. On to spring sewing next.
