Front of reception dress is done! And the back is done too!! Now all I have to do is put the halves together and do the facings and I will actually have at least one dress to wear!
One thing that is already bugging me is the invisible zipper pull that shows in the back. I should have moved the zipper to the side where it would be less noticeable. But I am certainly NOT going to change it now. Maybe I could come up with a way to emphasize it, since I can't hide it at this point. Add some red beads or something and make it a little feature. Hmmm.
Another thing that is bugging me is despite getting a heavier cotton to underline, you can still see the pleat folds through the skirt. The seam allowances are less noticable, but still somewhat visible. ARGH!!! No wonder I never sew with light colored fabrics!!!! This might be another thing to try to deal with if I have time, but for now I need to just let it go. I don't even know what I would do about it I had the time at this point, because I am absolutely not taking it apart and/or starting over, and short of that I don't know if there is any way to hide the show through in the ivory fabric.
These are things that probably only another sewing person would notice anyways. So maybe I need to just relax about it......Easier said than done!!
I should have pictures tomorrow.
