But it never happened! So this afternoon, I bite the bullet turned on my television, cued up CSI Miami on OnDemand and added the hem tape and stitched the hems down.
I also decided that I didn't need the covered button for the collar. I have a really kewl pin collection and leaving the embellishment off would give me opportunities to showcase them:
Now in the case of full disclosure...I must admit that I am wearing a super duper heavy all-in-one bodyshaper. Adding the embellished waistline to the dress brings attention to an area that is not my most attractive feature...*LOL* But I really wanted to try something different and I think it works:
Dress with the cardigan ~ and how I will most likely wear it!

Since it's dress weather...in the low fifties here on the East Coast...I plan on making a few more but next up is a simple lined skirt...
...as always, more later!
