I have learned a load of stuff on the way whilst doing this dress: The zip was the first invisible zip I've attempted (and believe me it is far from invisible, but I think it's tolerably okay now that I've ironed it hard!). I also had to wrestle with that curly hem foot thing... and with a little help from Utube and several yards of practice on fabric scraps, I finally got the hem done without too much stretching...
I also love the fact I lined it - because it gives it a weight and warmth that the fabric alone would have been missing. So I think I'll wear this....
Now, if you happen to be curious to read some of my ponderings along the way - links to previous posts relating to the dress are given below.

Thanks for looking.... now I wonder what I'll try next.
