Shirt to Dress, Part 3

Catch up with part one and part two, or just start reading here at part three.

I did a lot to this dress, but I was still having trouble with the neckline and bodice. It was flappy around the armpits, and uneven on the neckline. I pinned the neckline to be symmetrical. At first I thought I'd do darts for the armpits, but that didn't work, so I ended up cutting it around like so:
Pinned and ready to sew!


The final product:
Now, I promise I went out to dinner for my birthday in this dress, but I didn't get a picture at the restaurant.

When we got home, I asked Zane to take a couple pictures.

Dancing didn't end up happening, but it was fine, because Zane had been working out of town all week, and I just wanted to hang out with him. I guess we really are getting like an old couple (no offense, old people!), who just like to stay in and go to bed early on Friday nights.

Dress success!
