The Never-ending WIP

I hope to one day finish this dress, but for now, it continues to be a work in progress. Honestly, I don't know what I was thinking, attempting to sew a dress without a pattern. I had a wrap dress that I based it on, but don't really know what I'm doing. The bodice and shoulders are too big and my seam ripper and I have been spending lots of time together.

It's turned out much busier than I'd planned, but I do love the floral fabric I've used and am hoping it might distract people from all the mistakes.

For now, here's where it's at. I still have to make the ties for the waist, hem all of the skirt and try to fix the bodice. One day it will be finished....

Among my wedding gifts were 30 pieces of fabric, some from Japan. Thing is, I can't find a dress maker in NL :-( ! I'm thinking of lugging it back to Sg but my sisters said that it would be cheaper to buy a dress than to hv one made by hand ..sigh ..
