I did it! I did it!! I did it!!! So...I just finished my dress and it is gorgeous! It is technically my 2nd garment, but the other (another infinity) needs to be fixed (couple of missed spots sewing and elastic added because the skirt is HUGE!) but I finished my dress in time for Halloween!!! I am so glad that the structure of the dress allows for imperfections 'cause it is hard to sew stretchy fabric and being a novice and all....well, without further ado here is the link to my dress: http://img176.imageshack.us/img176/7125/sp3380zg4.jpg
(I will fix this when it lets me!)
Not the best photo - I look all haggard, but I was so proud. In case you can't tell the dress is midnight blue with gold specks and is a rectangle so the sides are jagged. I will post more pics when I go out in full costume!
