We have a dress...
I'm not crazy about it, but she likes it better than any that she tried on in the malls ...'It's swishy!'
I will readily admit that it looks much better in motion than it looks in a flash photograph.
I never dreamed that fabric would be such a beast to sew. The bias has hung out a bit unevenly on the skirts; I just whacked the lining back so that it won't show, but I don't think I'll worry about the dress itself.
It's no worse than the RTW we looked at. Really.
At least she has a dress to wear Friday. I think a perfect dress would have a midriff band under the bodice, to move the fullness of the skirt down a bit. Maybe for the church events...we'll worry about the other occasions after we get past this week....
