I did it! I finally sewed and fit the 2nd fit of my dress (for newbies, click here and here to see how this project started and progressed)! A few pricked fingers, broken needles, and late nights couldn’t stop this gal from finishing on schedule. On schedule I am but I was also on point. Only a few minor alterations are needed. I decided to eliminate the pleat furthest from CF to simplify the design. There is a lot of fullness in this dress and eliminating this pleat will prevent me from looking like I’m drowning in it. Also, because the skirt is on the bias, it is stretching in some spots and not other, making it a wonky hem. A simple leveling will correct this.
So what do you think? I’m oh-so-very excited to correct the pattern, buy the fabric, and get started on the final dress!
