Shell Game

I now have the basic shell of the dress completed. It's just a basic 8-panel princess seamed style right now. The next step is to make the under-leotard, and once that is done I can work out the neckline and sleeve option(s). Then I will sew the dress and leotard together, and start with the "finishing" work, such a putting elastic in the openings and figuring out if I'm going to try to insert a silver godet in the back center seam or not.

Sewing gives me lots of time to think, while actually getting something done. Today I listened to The Police's Message in a Box and remembered the crush I had on Sting when I was 17.
