The practice dress is basted together, even the zipper, for the final fitting before it get sewn up. We have three options for the straps. The third option is what the pattern calls for, and that's the one that seems the best to Katie and me.
Oh! And here's the front view, too.
The only thing to be finished is the final seaming and hemming. The rest should be routine. It should be finished this weekend, then we can cut into the fabric Julie (the bride) picked up a couple of days ago in St. Louis. It's going to be very pretty, but I won't post any pictures. Want to keep some surprises for the wedding :)
