This actually looks a lot better on me than on the dressform! I'll try and get a few pictures when I wear it tomorrow.

I forgot to have someone take a picture of me last night! I'll probably wear it again soon - it was very comfortable. In the meantime, here is a closeup of the fabric:

Kaitlin, It appears that you did some careful work placing the pattern on the fabric to get just what you wanted in the side panels. That is just beautiful.

That is spectacular ! ! ! Kaitlinn, I love the fabric and your expert use of construction to get the perfect placement for each piece. And on top of it all, my favorite color purple. Do post a photo of it on you next time you wear it. Beautifully done.
Sew With Love
