Dressmaking... check!

This post is a teaser, cause it's 530am and I'm not posting pics yet!

BUT - the dress is done.


I'll try to get some decent pics tonight, but I feel there's already some tailoring to be done.  That's the risk of using a pattern I guess... I just went with the measurements on the pattern and now my dress is not the best fit. 


I'm thinking I can pull in the side seams and make it work, but we'll see.

My choice of fabric may also be a contributing factor.  I love linen, but I didn't want to use a lightweight linen cause I didn't want this dress to be see-through.  I instead used a midweight linen and  now it feels a little heavy.  Hmmm.

Live and learn, right?
