This little dress has been my most time consuming and frustrating dress yet. However I definitely can say that I really learned a lot, especially about bodices and how I really don't know anything about them.
I was envisioning something longer and more retro looking but I just felt like the length looked so frumpy on me. I also planned on having a sewn on little sash to tie in a bow in the back, but it also looked kind of frumpy. I think so far one of the trickiest and most annoying things about making my own clothes is discovering the difference between what I like and what looks good on me.
