Still A Little More Progress.........

I have decided to do a scalloped edge along the back center. I have bought pink flower shaped buttons to go in each scallop. They may be too big though. We'll see.

A made a normal puffy sleeve with a cuff that is edged with the piping.

Decisions have to be made about whether I want a collar or if I'm going to put piping around the neck edge. Remember that I am planning to make this reversible using the floral print. I think the piping neck edge would look good on either side and a collar would probably add too much bulk. Hum.....?
I haven't done a good pressing of this yet, especially on the sleeve cap. I need to get my ironing ham or my sleeve board out for that.
Go to Crazy Mom Tats's blog. She's having a giveaway to honor her 100th post. I have decided to give this dress in honor of all my blogger friends and in honor of my 100th post. I hope that's ok with all of you.

It's really coming along! I think it's going to be too cute. I like the idea of piping for a reversible dress. I agree that the collar might be problematic.

What a nice detail for the back of the dress! Hope your mother is doing better. I know it is a strain.

This dress is sooo cute - and I vite for piping or a little lace ruffle instead of the collar.
I think the donation is a fine idea!

I, too, vote for piping! This is going to be completed in no time!

Thank you for the kind words you've left on my blog and offering the link. You are truly thoughtful! :)
