Well I could probably continue to make the fit and sleeves better but frankly I'm tired of toileing so I'm declaring it GOOD ENOUGH. I guess I have to decide which fabric to use now... the hard part!
Option 1: Matching cream fabric with contrasting black piping and black lace accents.
Option 2: The "vestee" out of matching cream fabric with black glass buttons - the rest out of black silk taffeta, creating a jacket-over-dress-effect like the archery dress from Daniel Deronda.
Both options would be lovely so I'm having a hard time deciding. I could always make both but then which one for the party?
I think dinner is in order and then I will decide...
