Here it is! And I took a picture of a completed project, albeit I threw it on this morning with my hair all slept on and crazy but it's done. I like it, I don't love it yet. The print is a bit blah but it's a great example of something a woman would wear at home. The bust gathers are not attractive. It seems to make my small bust look droopy. It does look better if I squish the gathers together so I'm going to tack them before I wear it again. There are 18 buttons. Sigh, idk what I was thinking but I love these almost white vintage plastic buttons. I did machine holes and machine stitched the buttons on. It doesn't take that long, but besides hemming, these buttons are my least favorite finish up activity. I didn't change anything about the pattern however it doesn't look like I thought it would. It must be the fabric. I did add a little bit of green lace to the edge of the sleeves to spice it up.
When I got home from work last night at midnight I decided to cut another dress. Insomnia what?! So I cut McCalls 5512 from 1977. Disco was hot baby. I cut it out of a cantaloupe colored bed sheet with big daisy bouquets all over it. I have mixed feelings about the sheet but I'll be crafty and call it a muslin.
One a side note, as much as I love my iPad it takes cruddy pictures.
