Disappointed but not defeated (yet)

I went to so much trouble on this dress.  There's all kindsa hand stitching.  I even made a partial muslin (sort of...  I made the lining first to see if it would fit.  I resewed all the bodice seams when I realized I'd sewn them at 3/8" instead of 5/8".  I resewed those curvy princess seams that were all wonky.  I redid the neckline like three times to lower and even it....

I can't lift my arms above my head.
Stay tuned for the sleeveless version.

Hopefully it'll be done in time for some Me Made May action (gah it starts tomorrow!  So excited!)


  1. It looks hella hot! I love it!

  2. Haha, thank you. If I ever have a day where I don't need to use my arms I can wear it!
