I wore this on my movie date to see Sherlock Holmes.
Which was awesome in case you were wondering.
I think It’s Elementary is also fitting, as I look a little like a school girl in this ;o)
I planned to put the zip at the side, where any mistakes would be less noticeable. I ended up omitting it entirely, since this denim has some stretch. It takes a little maneuvering to get into but it’s not too bad. I stitched my pleats down about 1.5 inches. I think it looks a little more streamlined that way.
I also managed to forget that little middle band in my haste to see if my darts lined up on both pieces. I think I like it better this way, though.
My bust darts could use some work, but with the right (padded ;D) bra, it might be alright.
