I was wondering how closely the pattern actually matched the original (we shall see).
Today was spent marking the fabric and reading the instructions, and separating fabric pieces.
There are a lot of pieces to this dress, and it's lined so double the number. It's a project that had you had to pay attention to layout, a few key pieces that are cut once, and some pieces cut once from fabric, and twice in lining.
It was cut out at the beginning of the month, and I'm very happy that I kept the pattern pieces with the fabric.
Here's some progress on the dress, more tomorrow.
