New Look's getting there!

So here is the dress that I have been working on for the last couple of months....damn! I can't believe it took me a couple of months to actually get to this point but whatever. Anyway I hope to get two more dresses done by summer so I have some beautiful outfits too rock.
Sorry for the lousy pics but I don't have a camera anymore so this will have to do in the meantime. The instructions were okay but the fabric was a different story. I had such a hard time sewing it together...but I just can't remember exactly why? It's a stable fabric it doesn't slip and glide like silk, or bunch up like jersy. But the process was just too damn difficult and slow. I hated the experience but I am happy with the outcome.
Now the reason I didn't take close ups is because...IT"S HORRIBLE TO TAKE PICS WITH A LAPTOP.... I couldn't understand how to maneuver the damn thing to get a clear shot. Second it would be a little embarrassing, the zipper looks ridiculous the stitching is very sloppy. I mean really sloppy I am just thankful that most of the stitching is hid in. Third there is a section in the back of the dress that is gathered, and it's not suppose to be. So, I decided not to go there.
Anyway that is it for right now. Thanks for stopping by.

You'll have your groove back in no time. Just keep sewing. I like this fabric very much.
