I had a friend's wedding to go to last week, and nothing to wear...so I decided it was time to actually finish a project.   Grin   

I've been sewing for a while, but not really from patterns, and not really any clothing.  Therefore, I was pretty impressed with how easily this pattern went together--I made it in an afternoon--and I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.  It is mostly view A, with a bit of C thrown in--the tie in back and the trim along the bottom.

The front (it has pockets!):






The back--it is actually smoother than this, but I was trying to ask hubby if it was straight and not wrinkled anywhere...his answer?  "it's fine."    Roll Eyes




Thanks for looking!   Smiley

SO good looking! When I see a dress like that, for some reason I think, "All she needs now is a BIG HAT!"
