I did opt out on sleeves for this dress. I feel that sleeveless often makes the cut a little more contemporary. As much as I love vintage styles, I try to avoid costuminess. Of course, that might be nearly impossible with this fabric. It's so very bright and flowery. No complaints, though. I picked it. But, I may have to give some added attention to how to tone it down a little. A neutral belt? Or . . . hmm. I'll do my thinking later.
Although I am making swift progress, the to do list is still on the long side.
Still to do:
1) Try it on and make necessary alterations.
2) Sew the shoulder straps together.
3) Put in the zipper.
5) Handwork/fix up the lining.
I'm gonna have to knock this one out if I'm going to get to a few other projects I keep thinking about. Extraneous sundresses are haunting my dreams.
Portland's unexpectedly blue skies are not helping matters.
