Sewing begins on the bright happy dress

Bright Happy Dress - bodices pieces sewn

Darts, shoulder seams, and side seams – woo hoo!  The bright happy dress is starting to come together, and I have to say, I’m really digging this crazy bright fabric.  People will be able to see me coming from a mile away!   I managed to squeeze in a little sewing time after work yesterday, which resulted in two completed bodice shells – the outer fabric and the cream lining.  Progress is slow but steady.  : )

Bright Happy Dress - close up of bodiceHere I am modeling the shell over a stripey shirt – not exactly a great combination, huh?  : )  But just imagine an entire dress full of bright circles, with bare arms in the warm summer sun.  Can’t wait!

Next up: putting the skirt pieces together.  French seams, baby!!
