Finally finished the dress!
Took me about two weeks on top of other homework to finish, but now it's finally done. Although, the final product is slightly different than these photos. The collar is looser/bigger and laid on the shoulders differently once I took the thread out, but still fabulous! Through this project I've learned to trust my instincts and to not always think so technical. There were probably many hours wasted trying to figure out the proper way to put together some of these pieces, but once I was tired of staring at it and not making any progress I just ripped it apart and had at it with my scissors. Overall it was a success and my sewing ability has improved!
I loved making this dress and I plan on making another with a different collar with all the left over organza! Hopefully I can get some really nice studio shots of it this week.
Now where's the next big party so I can wear this thing!?
