Making some progress...

I got a chance to sew for a couple hours today, Ya!  So I worked on the dress mention in my last post.

Simplicity 2177
All left to do is add the zipper & hem it and it's done.  I made a couple changes instead of pleating I gathered at the waist and I added a little modesty triangle since the neckline was too low and I didn't pay enough attention to that before cutting.  When I held the pattern pieces up to me it didn't seem as low but it ended up a bit low for my comfort.  I also ended up adding this little feature to the other dress I made like this one from the last post.  I actually I like this dress better.  The fabric is a little bit heavier but it still has the lycra stretch.  So, I'm going to finish this one up tomorrow and get started on Simplicity 2703 dress also shown in my last post.  More later...

Happy Sewing!!
