I listened to Narnia on CD, I chatted with friends, listened to music galore and my family kept me company. I think that is what made me finish this dress. I clocked it and it took me about 12 hours. It seemed like a long time...... over 8 hours is hand sewing. That can get rather boring ;) But no matter! It is finished and it does need a collar. These are not the best pictures but they will do for now.
Oh, and those tucks in the skirt? They were a huge mistake. See...... I had the skirt finished and the bodice finished and I needed to still cut out the waistband. So I cut it out..... of the SKIRT! I thought it was scrap and really did panic when I realized. Now my skirt was too short. I ended up inserting a panel in the middle of the skirt and putting tucks in to cover up the seams. PHEW!
Till next time!
