So you'll have to settle for a couple of teaser shots:
This is the neckline and shoulder. (Yes, I still need to give it a good pressing!)
This is the armhole. I lined the bodice edge to edge. I love the colors! I can' t wait to see this outside in natural light. (Those googly circles kind of remind me of slices of boiled egg arranged all over a big tossed salad- Mmmm.)
Unfortunately, I'm not in love with the dress. Oh, it turned out alright, it just doesn't fit the way I wanted it to (in spite of two muslins). The skirt portion is great- very flattering, at least in my opinion. The bodice, however... not so much. The neckline is much wider than I thought it would be and the whole top of the dress just feels a little big. I'm wondering if I should have gone down a size on top. I don't know, though. I checked the magazine photos and it looks like the model has similar problems, so maybe it's just the style.
And as if it's not enough to be slightly disappointed in a completed project, my mojo seems to have gone missing. I can't even muster up enough of it to make a simple A-line cotton skirt. Perhaps a trip to the fabric store is what I need. Now if only I could find the time to go...
