This project will not feature any photos as I want my finished version to be a surprise. It's no fun to go out of town and everyone there has already seen your dress on the internet, right? Right! But I do still feel like documenting my progress.

Upon closer inspection, I realized this is a complicated dress. The description says it's two piece...which means that skirt is all one piece o_O. I know I could do it however I want (and I usually do), but I feel like doing it as one piece. Less bulk at the waistline.

So far I have cut out the "under skirt" and sewn together the front and side pieces. Then I cut out 40" long piece, hemmed the bottom (Properly! I didn't serge it! OK, I admit I didn't serge it because I don't have 4 cones of red), and started making 1" wide pleats with a 1/2" repeat for the center front. I'm about half way done.

So that's it for now. I still need fringe and it looks like I need piping. Hate making piping! Uses up all that pretty fabric and no one really notices it, but it does make a difference.
