The dress is almost finished and I'm happy with some parts of it and dissatisfied with others. I was so preoccupied with getting the binding on the neckline correctly that I sewed it down then realized I hadn't added the lining...and it took so much effort to get the binding on correctly that I just couldn't bear the thought of unpicking it...so the dress is unlined.
I also don't think the belt is going to work...unless I come up with another idea. I'm tired now so I know it's time to stop, clean up and get ready for work tomorrow.
Here's a sneak peek...I know you want to see how I'm doing so far...
There's plenty of finishing work left to do...more buttons need to be sewn on the dress...the hook and eye added to the back neckline...shoulder pads sewn in...hem cut and bound...and of course, the major decision, "What to do about the belt?"
I'm not sure this is going to end up being a good interpretation...it might just end up being a nice work dress...*sigh*
