Version 1, finished in May. I followed the pattern for this one, and did five lines of waist shirring. I cut this one at a larger size than the following versions (but the later versions also had less shirring, so it balances out).
Let's all ponder what this pose is, shall we? I finished this one on the Madison retreat in June.
I wore this one to my sister's rehearsal dinner, but I only have half shots of it. Oh well. Eventually.
The tunic and two later dresses were cut with a wider neckline, as I felt the pattern neckline is just a little too high.
