I sewed the bodice and the bodice lining, I added lace that I picked up from a craft store for less than $3 for the whole roll. (and there is still some left for future use)
This went together really well partially because I made this dress before and because it is a simple pattern. I thought that this fabric would be more difficult to work with because it is a little slippery but so far I haven’t had any problems working with the fabric.
Even if I don’t get anymore sewing done today or this weekend I hope to unpick the stitches in the skirt to make room for the zipper.
