I am super stoked about this dress! The pleats! The extra little drapes on the side (sorry, I don't know their real name)! The vintage feel of it all is perfect. I love this pattern so much.
This is the first time I have used real muslin to make a "muslin" because making this dress is a stretch of my abilities.
And I sewed the top backwards, which I don't plan on doing on my final draft. I'm going to be adding inches all over it, to fit my body better and make it a tad more modest.
