This dress almost ended up in the trash. It's my second version of Butterick 5235 and I thought it would be a quick project, but nope! Everything that could go wrong certainly did; I used my seam ripper so much on this project. It should have been completed last week but I just couldn't seem to able to get it done. First I had trouble inserting the zipper, then the sleeves wouldn't fit well. I'm so glad its over; I'm looking forward to a much simpler project.
As much time as I spent on this dress, I'm going to make sure I get a lot of wear out of it.
