With the prettier of the two statement necklaces, for Maeve. ;)
The rest of me is definitely not ready for prime time, but hey. BFF came over and I hadn't tried on the dress yet so I put it on for her and then I took a picture for you! :D
I know. So much could be improved if I wouldn't take pictures at this hour, or would wait until I had makeup or did something other than ponytail my hair up. But... I guess you take 'em as you get 'em.
Anyway. I sewed my seams at 6/8" instead of 5/8" (for yoja, and the 1/8th inch) which tightened things nicely except at the small of my back. The way things are going - either with weight loss or my recent habit of lacing up all the time because my neck has been killing me - I'll be taking this in soon enough anyway and I can snug up that lower back at that point.
Won't this look too cute with a denim jacket?
Next up is back to school sewing. Tra la!
