Ok, so I installed the zipper and lining and now I love the cut of this dress! Once I realized I could fluff out and tack down the sleeves to cover that oh-so attractive bit of armpit pudge, I was on like donkey kong. Here's a crap photo, taken by a nine year old so no hating! :)
Also a close up of how *perfectly* aligned the piping is on the back, cause a girl's gotta brag sometime!
