I topstitched the hems in pink to match the butterflies. My mom got the fabric for her. Yes, my mom is totally a sewing enabler.
She got a little tired of having me try it on and off of her to check the elastic (love the corny face). It ended up being a little loose yet, so I will take it in again tomorrow.
I think this is a nice casual look for her though. Very flattering, very comfortable.
In suit jacket news, I finished the hand tailoring (FINALLY) and sewed the front to the back. I think I should let the center back seam out ... since I can't let it out anywhere else at this point. Muslins when you're adding a ton of extra fabric? Sigh. It's always a surprise!
But I think that means my next step is sewing the collar to the body ... then we go sleeves, then we can call ourselves close to the end. And I am sewing some pretty dresses that finish in less than a month!!!!!!!! And then I guess I have this overcoat to make... lol.
