So I finally started sewing...
The bodice and sleeves come together first. It's hard to tell with this pattern--you can kinda see the seams above--but the sleeves join waaaaay into the bodice. I like it. It creates this narrow little panel on the front of the bodice, which would otherwise look like a basic wrap dress. Cute detail, Weekend Sewing. Very cute. Then you sew the back on:
That part was pretty basic, but looking at this picture I'm pretty excited to see this dress all pulled together with that brown trellis-y fabric. Yay!
So this is where I'm stopping tonight. The next place we're heading is elastic thread territory and something tells me I'll want to be well rested and prepped for that.
