Finally, some photos
Here is the Butterick dress on AlmaMarie. I don't like the look of the back view in this photo, simply because AlmaMarie is a little bigger than I am now and the zipper is exposed. When I wear the dress, the back being less snug on me, the zipper is not so exposed. The last photo shows the lining at the shoulder and armscye area.
I cut out the dress fabric for the new Simplicity dress yesterday evening. I will cut out the lining fabric this AM and hope to get some sewing started on the dress today. I picked up some zippers, thread, hook and eyes and ,of course, a Simplicity skirt pattern since it was on sale for
$1 at JoAnn's yesterday. Updates later.
