Lunch break idea becomes reality

I finished the dress that I had sketched in the last post.  I think it turned out pretty well.  I see a lot of goofs, but most are hidden on the inide of the dress, so no one else should know they are there.

I’m using this as a wardrobe builder.  Next step is to make a gray bolero with long sleeves & just a touch of black trim to give it a little pizzazz.  After that, I’ll make some slacks in black & maybe a few coordinating blouses. 

Basic Pattern

I started with this.
