Dust Bowl Evening Gown Progress.

Yay, my head cold is on it's way out!

Once I cut out and overlocked the rayon the dress went together rather quickly.


This is one of those rare patterns where the two notched arm whole indicates the front. Generally, overwhelmingly it's a marking for the back. I wrote a note on it just so I didn't mix them up.
What will take some time is the hand hemming of the flutter sleeves. I'm letting the gown hand for a day or so, then I'll add the zipper and sleeves. 


Also, I really like the neckline, I'm going to enjoy stitching that down.

I'll post more later!
