Well, I'm not so sure I'm thrilled with it, but it will be a good summer dress. Cool and comfortable. And since Fall doesn't seem to be anywhere in our near future here, I still need summer clothes. I'm OK with how this turned out, but there are a few things I don't like. First of all, I raised the waist, because I always have to raise the waist. Apparently not this time. Hmph!
I was also stupid when I did the layout and forgot to lay out the front bodice pieces. I would have had enough fabric had I paid attention, but nooooo... Of course the fabric store was sold out and I couldn't get more. sigh.
The fit is comfortable, but from the side I look like I'm about 300 pounds. Therefore, we're only getting a front picture here!
I do like the way the front of the bodice fits, but I hate the leisure-suite-style collar. It's a bit BIG. There is something I do like about this dress though, so I may make it again. It did have a lot of pieces and was a little time consuming, but most dresses are unless they are knits. Well, I really must get off the computer and go to bed :-)
