It's Finished!!!! V1027

v1027  Talk about "easy peasy."  I could have put this together in my sleep.  The instructions were great!  I was surprised how the waistband/ties were constructed.  I wore this to church today and received a lot of compliments!  The fabric was a cheap knit from fabric.com.  It was very, very sheer...so as I said in a previous post.  I used 2 layers and treated them as one.  I don't usually make the same pattern twice, but I will have to make this one again.  The only thing I will do differently is add about 1/2 inch to my FBA. I made the dress entirely on my serger including making a rolled edge hem with wooly nylon in my upper and lower looper. I did, however, use my sewing machine to topstitch the neckline and arm hole facings.  I used a size 14 pattern.  Here are the lovely pics my GD took before we left for church today!  Peace and blessings to you all!

Your dress looks fantastic, it's great when you find a wrap bodice that sits where it is supposed to, definitely make some more!

Very nice! My daughter just purchased a similar dress...well actually two of them...from Land's End.
Thanks for stopping by.
You really should make a bunch of the coffee cuffs. Talk about easy peasy. I know you would enjoy the process.
Have a good week.
