It's complete!

The dress is finished except for sewing the hook and eye!!!  Dang it took me forever to complete this dress.  So many interruptions that I was beginning to wonder if I would finish it  and if I would actually be sewing anytime soon.

I will take more photos wearing the dress later this week; this is the best I have at this time.

Hanging the way it is does not really give you a great feel for how this dress looks.  It looks like a sack here.
I cleaned up the sewing table and put up the pattern.  I started pulling out other fabric that I decided to move to my other room where I store fabrics that are off season. I was thinking about doing a quick project but decided that I wanted to make a jacket that I had put aside for several months.  That process has begun.

  4. Can't wait to see you wearing this dress - I am up to putting in the zipper on mine at the moment, which is also taking me forever ... J

  5. Dresses are supposed to be on bodies, not on coathangers - they need bodies to fill them out - it will look gorgeous on you :)

    1. I agree about being on bodies, not hangers.

  6. You know what? I can tell that this dress looks lovely on you. Same thing happens here: on the hanger -- not so good, but on a body, the way it was meant to be, much better! And I really love those ruffles! Do you think they would be flattering on someone who usually has to do a FBA? Or is it too much in that area?

  7. Thanks for answering my question. I will definitely be incorporating some ruffles In an upcoming project!
