Prom Dress Update

A few weeks back I mentioned how thrilled I am to have been asked to make my neighbour Jess' Prom Dress.  After browsing through all my patterns, she was undecided between the 50's classic Walkaway Dress and a 60's full skirted dress (see post here).  We took both patterns with us fabric shopping last week, and the moment we got to Liberty's 3rd floor, the fabrics chose the dress...

Similar to the dress I made for myself from this same pattern, Jess liked the idea of different prints making up the four skirt panels, and a plainer bodice.  So she went for the blue and red roses and the poppies for the skirt, with a soft off-white cotton for the bodice.

After a fitting yesterday, it's all looking lovely (I want to keep it!) and this morning will see me blissfully hand stitching the neck-line interfacing, shoulder lining seams, and gathering the skirt, ready to be put together and zippered for one last fitting tonight to determine the length for hemming.
