Are you ready for some sun? I am! Week 26

I’m half way through my year long challenge!  Can you believe it?!?!?!  26 weeks!  I’m pretty excited about it and the progress I’ve made.  26 to go and I’m enjoying all of them so much.

Week 26 is this fun sundress!

When I first saw this pattern I fell in love, the bodice was so unique and looked challenging so I wanted to try it.  It was definitely different,  and not as hard as I anticipated.  If you take your time and read carefully it really isn’t very difficult it’s just time consuming and requires patience.  The bodice front is in three pieces and has at least six darts and three pleats.  It went together faster and easier than I thought.

No matter how many times I sew something I’m still in awe that a pile of pieces transforms like this.

 

The bodice is double lined and the back has ties and a zipper.  All of it was new and different construction but nothing too challenging.

 

I added a couple of inches to the length and have no complaints, I’m in love with the details of the bust and the construction.

 

What do you think!?!?!?  Are you ready for Spring?
