I've had the most difficult time just getting the yoke in the proper position. My fabric looks the same on the wrong side and I think that has a lot to do with my confusion. I'd get it pinned in place only to realize the shoulder seam would face the wrong way so I would pull out all the pins and re position it. I even basted it down once only to realize I had positioned it on the wrong side of the dress. Talk about frustrating! But it's in the correct position now and basted down and tried on and everything looks right as rain so if I sew it very carefully in place, I might be able to move on to the next step.
I had always planned on using this as a summer dress so even though I missed the Dinner, I still plan on completing it. I'll post the finished masterpiece when it's ready.
I did so enjoy your visit to Prairie Cairn Cottage today, I hope you come back soon.
