Below I am sewing on the bias tape to finish off the neckline and armholes.
The bodice is mostly finished. I plan more button holes in the back (I turned the shirt around so it would button up the back). I will also change the white buttons that were on the shirt to dark purple ones. But first I have a problem.
I am a bit stuck now. See how the bodice curves up in the front in the change room photo? I love that, so graceful. I managed to cut my bodice like that but now I want to cut out the skirt. I want it lightly gathered rather than full. How do I cut the curved shape? How much do I cut to get lightly gathered? I must confess I don't know.
