Dress update

As I said previously this dress is presenting a lot of sewing  challenges opportunities.  I really thought I would be further along; but it takes time to do a lot of topstitching.
I attached the bodice lining to the bodice fabric.  There was a lot of trimming and pressing necessary.  I then sewed the side seams per the instructions.  The back is still full at the bottom of the bodice piece.  I think I will undo the side seam and adjust the seam so that I take an additional 1/4 inch on each back seam.  You can see how it looks on Alma Marie.  The back seam was pinned where the zipper would be inserted.Upper bodice attached to lining

  1. I love this pattern, I bet it's going to look great.

  2. Looking good so far. What pretty shade of blue!

  3. What a lovely color! It looks like it's coming along nicely! Hehe.. I always think I'm going to be done with a project way sooner than I really am... I need to stop doing that and just give myself enough time. :)

  4. Oh, I love that color~ can't wait to see the finished dress!
