All that’s left on McCall 5314 is attaching the bodice and skirt. I’m hoping to finish this dress today and start sewing the BWOF 9-2003-134. I got it cut out Thursday night. No muslin (it might be too slim in the lower thigh but that’s what control top pantyhose are for).
My mom is a full bird Colonel in the Army and retiring in a big ceremony in two weeks. I think this is the kind of dress that will stand the test of time in photos. Unlike my too thin eyebrows in the above photo from her last promotion ceremony.
