Another Macaroon

I love this pattern!!! This dress took just over 2 days from cutting to hemming.  The only change I made to the muslin was to add a half inch FBA to the bodice.  I think the fit is just about perfect now.

I love the fabric.  It’s vintage hotel/motel signs.

    I love the fabric combo too! I must finish the alterations on mine, which were only a pain because I thought it would be a good idea to make the upper bodice in a knit. Which was/is ill-conceived.
