    I think it will be great; can’t wait to see it. Emerald green in sequins sounds awesome. Emerald green is the color for the season, I’ll be making a green dress soon also. I’m going to have to start using patterns though, my cowl may have draped nicer. What pattern did you use?

      Thanks Mary. I did break a needle but I grabbed another then later realized it was a leather needle and it worked great.

      Might not be the best pic but here’s a pic of the back. I just checked out your gold dress again. Great back! I didn’t have a pattern so the back gave me some problems.

      the back looks really good. The back on my gold one had a seperate cowl that was attached at the shoulders. I found this gave great drape. I.ve cut another out in emerald green sequins for sat night. I used the front of a burda pattern and the back of my gold dress pattern.i wanted a cowl back and front. i.m adding sleeves as well. I just hope it looks ok when sewn lol x
