It's been awhile since I put up a sewing project, much less anything else. I made this to wear it to our friends' wedding rehearsal dinner this Friday evening. This is green cotton jacquard from fashion fabric club, in a blend of two patterns (with a little "drafting" to make the patterns match up). It's lined with light blue cotton batiste...maybe not very matchy-matchy, but it doesn't peep out and is so soft on my skin. I'd really rather do this than line it with a matching polyester that will make me sweat all evening. The dress went together smoothly & I feel great in it! However, in looking at the pictures, I think I'll be sewing up that vent in the back. It just doesn't look proportional and (I'll try on the dress again just to make sure but) I don't think I have to have it to walk easily. I'm wearing 3" heels with this dress...do you really think I'm going to be walking easily anyway?
