It's not quite done yet. It still needs a hem- as soon as I decide how long I want it to be- and it needs buttons and buttonholes. I want to use faux mother of pearl buttons like these that I've already sewn to the sleeve tabs:
Unfortunately I only had two in my stash and it's an hour drive to the nearest fabric store to buy more. I hope to get more this weekend and get this dress finished. Then I'll post a review and share the low-down on this pattern. But let me just say this much- I'm pretty pleased with it.
And while I'm posting, I'd like to say thanks to all the folks who left kind comments about my last project, the Safari Dress. I really appreciate them. I wanted to reply to them individually, but I've had some family activities going on in the last couple of weeks that have seriously curtailed my computer time here at home. Just know that I really appreciate that y'all took the time to stop by and leave a comment.
And now, I'm off to work on my next project, Simplicity 3744 Redux.
