Black Dress Fitting

IMGP4492 IMGP4489

What have I been up to at school lately?

About fifty bazillion black dress fittings, that's what.  It's starting to get to the point where I'm fixing little things, like the position of the princess seams at the bust and the shoulder darts.  They aren't so bad right now, but they still need some tweaks to really lie they way they should.  It is pretty awesome, though, to see the transformation of the fit from crappy-sack-with-a-waistband to sweet little black dress.  It's starting to look like the dress I envisioned!

This version has actually been pinned for modifications and is clearly wrinkle-tastic, but I thought it might be cool to share some of my progress.

And you'll have to excuse my scrunchie (which was actually crocheted for me by the host sister!) because I've been cleaning all afternoon.  Tomorrow my mom and I are going to put a deposit down on the wedding venue, so I'm not sure I'll get a post in - if not, hope everybody has a good weekend!
