So, if you can look past the glare that is my fish underbelly legs, here's some outside tripod shots of the finished dress. I'm wearing cream colored shoes and they are darker than my legs. Oy.
I removed the tie at the neck, which means I now have a buttonhole that leads to nowhere. Oh well, it gets hidden in the elastic gathers.
I also elasticized the sleeve hems. As they were last night, they just seemed frumpy muu-muu to me.
And yes, I am sucking in for all it's worth, why do you ask? ;-)
Here's the back view.
I think I'll go unpack a couple of boxes and then buy some self-tanner.
