Pink Abomination - Part 2

As I promised in my last post, here are pictures of the pink abomination!

The front isn't quite done - the dress is supposed to be cut higher in the front than the back, but because I decided to leave myself lots of room for error, I didn't cut the whole front out yet. I figured I should concentrate on the top, and leave the easy part to the last.

A close-up of the front. The gathers are wonky, but the front is just tacked together at the waist seam, so I'll be able to pull it and redo them with minimal effort.

I'm especially proud of the back - the darts line up perfectly. Yay me! Also, there's an invisible zipper, which I bought a special foot for. Worked like a charm!

Here's a closeup of the back. I haven't ironed anything yet, so it's not as crisp as it should be.

Bravo, you! I wouldn't have thought to go out and buy fabric I didn't like to test the waters, but whatever works for you. You did a great job - I've only just conquered fear of invisible zipper and you just went on out and bought the foot and got it over with.

Congrats. Now when you cut into the fabric you like, it won't be half as scary.

Thanks for the kind words!

I'm pretty proud of the zipper, although I have no right to be - I just followed the teeny little directions that came folded up in the package with the foot. It probably helps that I had eleven cups of coffee before starting - I was hyperaware of everything I was doing.

Zipper feet are my friends. I can't wait to try out the buttonhole foot!
