I was too busy yesterday celebrating to actually take pictures, but the dress got done on time, woohoo!
Here it is. McCall 5466, view B.
Now, a lined dress has about a zillion steps, but this did come together easily. I really like the way this looks from the front. Bonus: the dress has pockets.
I bought the fabric over two years ago - so I'm really pleased I used stash fabric. I also did use a black zipper, but you can't really see it, so that worked out ok.
Dislike: I don't love the back. All the pleats seem unnecessary. Like my sewing review says - the next time I'll make this, I'll swap out a plain bodice and skirt back.
I am so pleased though, that this dress got done on time. St. Patty's day attracts a lot of craziness at the bar - but I felt professional, classy, and still festive. Which is pretty cool.
