Ok, this dress is FINALLY done!
I started this after I saw the Science of Sleep in theaters (2006), modeling it after this tan knit dress the female lead wears in one scene...I loved it that much.
So I did it and hated it and completely undid it. This is the end of a very long journey.
So without further ado...

It doesn't usually look so..sack-like, but I need to wash it to loosen it up still and I was slouching.

Here's a close-up on the stitches, which I'm really proud of.


Anyway, thanks for looking, love to hear any opinions, good or bad, but be gentle if bad, we are talking about 2 years of my life here.
