I'm really happy with the outcome. The dress is NOT perfect AT ALL; there are so many things that could have done better. Like, such as:
- The invisible zipper is totally visible. invisible zippers are my vice. I had to sew in three separate zippers because one broke, one was too short, and the next one is hardly perfect.
- The hem was tricky. for some reason as i hemmed it on the machine, the part that is turned up underneath kept bubbling since it is a bigger circumference than the hemline (that must be so hard to understand if you don't sew. Just take my word for it-- it was difficult).
- the fabric in general was a beast. It frayed like crazy and is also really thick, making it bulky in some areas with lots of seams, like the yoke.
The clips are, of course, Fleur and Feather.
