    It does look lovely though! And oh my, are those orange melissas? If they are, I have them in green! (but I didn’t know they came in orange – that’s way cooler!)

      Why thank you! I do enjoy the silhouette. My mother thinks the dress is a bit long and I should chop a few inches off the bottom but I’m not sure!

      Usually mother knows best, but I think the current length is just right. :)

      Haha do it! But ditch the hand sewing and be extra careful with the straps :P

    I am guessing it was the neck-line and armholes that gave you the grief, but to me it looks great. All part of the learning process of sewing and this dress looks pretty good from here. Sometimes with Vogue patterns you have to ditch the instructions and just use your brains and instinct to whip up the garment you are making.
