Ok, the swearing is at myself (see previous post), but I think that, in the end, the dress turned out quite nice (though you can see my cutting issues where I didn't have everything lined up properly...oops).
This is the front view...LOVE how it fits and give the illusion of a waist...lol
back view...also has the point, which I didn't do such a great job on, but which still looks nice. Liking the collar detail as well...not a straight, high collar, but a little notched bit...just another cute little detail.
Total used from fabric stash: 4 freaking yards!!! well, that's something anyway, right??
