I’m (mostly) happy with how this dress project turned out. I had just enough fabric from a friend to squeak it out, and it’s still not totally done (it’s missing a hook and eye and one dang button), but I’m pretty pleased.
The main problem I had was that once I’d gotten the whole dress together, nothing I did would convince the collar to look like the pattern picture! I ended up folding it over and tacking it down instead, and I can see now that I need to tack it down a little further, because it got pretty rumpled in the test wearing. I’d really like to make the view with the front scallop detail once the weather warms up a bit… at least that one has a straightforward neckline.
More pictures and babbling on my blog. And, uh, if anyone sees another green heart button like these, let me know, will you? I’ve only got six, and I need seven.
