half a dress!
Apparently, I'm operating in a time-warp, because its officially been a week, but I would swear its been more like three days.
Anyhow, current progress on the bodice -- the top half is sewn up (except for the bust darts which will actually be gathers) and the midriff is pinned on as I play with the fit. It looks fine in the pictures, but when I was turning the bust dart into gathers (post picture taking) something slipped and it ended up with an inch or so more ease than I wanted.... so that will have to be fixed.
Other than the fact that my shoulders are clearly different heights, I'm liking this thus far. And really, my wonky-self is not the dress' fault.
Next step - get the rest of the bodice sewn up, then on to the skirt! (I plan pockets!)
