Praise the Lord! I DID IT! I finalllllllllly finished the Retro Butterick '56!!!
SHEW!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are a couple of little things that I need to adjust here and there but other than that IT IS DONE!! And it fits wonderfully!! :)) I cut it a size smaller than my measurements suggested. ;) I'm also thinking about taking the zipper out. It really doesn't need it and I think it messes with the flow of the material. It probably would be fine with something other than a knit, though.
The rest of the day I will be working on an A-line skirt and tutorial to go with it. Skirts are pretty quick sews so I might be able to post the tutorial later tonight! :) YAY!!!!
I am sooooo relieved to have that dress done! It was starting to feel like it would never happen! LOL
