I love how this dress turned out! I was itching to use this fabric, and saw the Lucy Liu dress (last pic) in a magazine and had to make it! The pattern was really easy to follow, but the facing wouldn’t sit right, so I had to play with it a lot for it to work. Otherwise I followed the pattern almost exactly. The neckline isn’t as uneven as it for some reason looks in the pictures :) Oh yeah, and the 2nd-to-last pic is my pretty french seams :)

my hubby for taking the pics! (he really hates doing it… especially when he’s busy watching football)
