Arggghh!! I had an entire post written and it disappeared. Grrrr. Short version: I added shoulder pads to Butterick 6410 and all is now right in the world. You were correct. I was just tired and hit a wall with this dress after having to re-sew the bodice.
Even better, I decided to go with a necklace I already own so I just need earrings and a cocktail ring.
My original post was far more entertaining than this. Sigh. Shoes are below. $21.95 on clearance from 6pm.com. I’ll post photos of me in the actual dress after I wear it on May 8th. Until then, I’ll make May the month I sew for other people. Mother’s and Father’s Day are coming up and I owe a girlfriend a duvet cover. Of course, I’m not *committing* to this. It’s just a nice thought before May actually begins.
