When Lightning Strikes

All I needed was a big hit of inspiration. At this point I've sewn as much as I can, the remaining steps are:
  1. flat stone the bodice
  2. sew the bodice back and side seams
  3. draft the sleeves
  4. flat stone the sleeves
  5. set the sleeves into the bodice
  6. sew the bodice to the bottom half of the bodysuit/dress
  7. sew the skirts to the bodice
  8. finish stoning the dress
  9. hem the chiffon skirts with poly braid
  10. finish the legs of the bodysuit
  11. make the float

Then there's the issue of figuring out what I'm going to do for "support." I wear a 34F dresses made with just those little sew-in bra cups are problematic. I'll worry about this later, at worst case I can replace all the straps on one of my regular bras with nude elastic and just wear it under the dress.

This sounds like a lot of work, and it is, but it is manageable if I just keep working diligently.
