Party Dress Finished

I finished the dress.  The pattern was very simple – I would use it again.  I’m not s huge fan of how the elastic was done at the waist – next time I’ll add bias around the edge to clean it up.

Party Dress

I’ve decided to make myself a pretty summer dress.  Partly because I have nothing to wear to my Aunt’s wedding, partly because I don’t own many (any, really) summer dresses, and mostly because I fell in love with this fabric.

I’ve slapped together a mock-up using a light cotton.  I have to say it’s a lot different from the sewing I usually do, so I don’t know how I feel about it.  It’s a bit looser in the bodice than I like so I’ll take it one size down for the actual dress.
