More bits being added.

I made this unlined shift before I even started the bloomers and leotard to go under it, but here it is so far. Again, it's still damp from styling and the crinkle fabric is looking lovely.

Over the shift will go a sort of overdress, hopefully.  I'll need to draft a completely new pattern for what I imagine.  Very often, I'll have a design in mind, but practical considerations, such as scale, or the method something needs to be sewn can mean I end up with something not quite as I intended.

On the bright side, I do enjoy the occasional surprise this brings.

Now I'm off to rummage in my stash for the perfect overdress fabric.
