And that's what this dress makes me feel like!
I went with a straight waist because it seems like a more youthly style, and it's a nod to the fact that I at first wanted to do a later 1860s dress until I got this fabric.
The dress was supposed to have an overskirt like this to jazz it up a bit, but unfortunately my machine started acting up a few days ago and I wasn't able to get it done on time. Well, I still have the fabric, so maybe for next dance...

Also, I was having the crappiest week of all crap weeks until I came home and found a dress form waiting for me! It's lovely (and too large at the waist...) but it will no doubt help me with draping finnicky things.
Also, since people seem to be posting their supplementary sewing diaries, mine is www.tumblr.com/blog/sewing-and-other-things. Feel free to drop a line, but be warned, I curse like an angry sailor on tumblr (it brings out the rebel in me.)
Now! To sew warmies for Minooka! /flies away/
