My new dress

The dress I've been working on forever!!! Not because its hard... because I've just been so busy!
Here's the top part of the dress... I have to hand sew on the braided trim. I'm really loving the dress. To the left you can see it was a shirt pattern and I just lengthened it.
Problem: I made this for a church dress... but on me it fits to low. I might try bringing it together and closing it up some...
we'll see. I got the fabric from a store called Rex in Miami... awesome store if you're in the area!

Last night I cut out a couple of patterns I want to make soon... Butterick 5132 a Chetta B design. And young Burda 7875... a pattern of 4 different boleros!!

What a cool idea to alter the top to a dress and like the fabric.
