We'll start with the statistics for this one, shall we?

Stats
Started Life As:
- Size 14 turtleneck jumper
- Size 14 Skirt
Is Now:


A lovely Size 8 - 10 shift dress! Great for parties and drag shows! (wait what)

It's been shaped in a little at the waist, but that's about it. It was also my second attempt at sewing on bias tape (which I failed miserably at, gaping holes everywhere >C). Even though it looks like one armhole is enormous in comparison to the other, they're both the same size. It just sits funny on my disjointed dressform.

What I Learned:
 - Bias tape still hates me.
