Is it me? Do you see it?
I'm thinking this dress is ultimately more 'Betty' than 'Betty', but that print... it's impossible for me to not have the theme song to the Flintstones cartoon in the back of my mind while I sew. How horrible is it that I remember the theme song lyrics, entirely, to a show I haven't watched in close to 20 years but can't recite the preamble to the US Constitution I learned at approximately the same time... Don't answer that.
After overcoming the initial fit obstacles I had with the bodice, things seem to be going smoothly. Still, I never really know how a dress is going to fit until after I get the zipper in and try it on properly. Having Mike hold my zipper opening closed helps give me a rough idea (I could probably get a clearer picture if I trusted him with pins), but it's more approximation than precision.
Barring unforeseen disaster, the dress will be finished by Friday, so long as I can put my sweater down, that is.
