It Is Finished.

I still can't believe I took this.

And turned it into this.

Inside out to show the lining.

Tomorrow I'll find out if it fits the recipient. I'm worried it will be too big but my fingers are crossed. I'll post a picture tomorrow of my daughter modeling the dress, whether it fits or not.  Please excuse the lining looking crooked. It probably is. That stuff was hard to cut, hard to pin and hard to sew. It slipped all over the place and spit out the pins. I like to use lots of pins but they would literally fall out of the lining fabric while I was trying to sew. I do like the end result and can live with a bit of crookedness. It's going to be hidden on the inside.

I sewed the side seams of the lining with 3/4" seams instead of 5/8". I wanted it to be just slightly smaller than the dress so it would fit inside better.

UPDATE: The dress is going to require a bit of "taking in" before I can provide a photo of the daughter wearing it. Stay tuned (and cross those fingers).
