Simplicity 1777 Update

Miracle of miracles! My baby slept four hours and my older girls played nicely so I was able to sew a lot!

I still need to take in the sides of the torso, raise the skirt hem, hem the sleeves, and add buttons to it. It isn't couture perfect, sadly, but I am proud of my progress as a seamstress. I worked hard to adjust the pattern and although it doesn't fit exactly perfect, it's the closest I've ever been! Yeah!

P.S.- I don't know how I ever sewed without a dress form! They are so helpful. 

P.S.S- Here is a link to a video tutorial on making this dress! I wish I would've watched this before I started! I shouldn't have used cotton...not a recommended fabric. :(
