St. Patrick Day's dress - done!

I was too busy yesterday celebrating to actually take pictures, but the dress got done on time, woohoo!

Here it is. McCall 5466, view B.

Now, a lined dress has about a zillion steps, but this did come together easily. I really like the way this looks from the front. Bonus: the dress has pockets.

I bought the fabric over two years ago - so I'm really pleased I used stash fabric. I also did use a black zipper, but you can't really see it, so that worked out ok.

Dislike: I don't love the back. All the pleats seem unnecessary. Like my sewing review says - the next time I'll make this, I'll swap out a plain bodice and skirt back.

I am so pleased though, that this dress got done on time. St. Patty's day attracts a lot of craziness at the bar - but I felt professional, classy, and still festive. Which is pretty cool.

I absolutely love your dress, very flattering. I also like the back the way it is - it looks like it belongs with the front if you know what I mean.
