At Last...

I have finally finished my circle skirt from Casey's Circle Skirt Sew Along. I finished it a while ago but the bottom was all wonky - portions up to 4 inches longer than the rest of the skirt. When I got my dress form for Christmas, I realized I could hem my skirt straight because the dress form has a hem marker! My new best friend. :) So on Sunday I FINALLY got to wear my circle skirt. Here are the pictures. :)

1952 Butterick Dress... Finally!

So it's been about six months but alas, here it is!

The original pattern:
The finished dress:
My friend made the fascinator custom to match! It's awesome. I love this dress and I definitely didn't look like anyone else at the wedding. :) Good times.
I will get better pictures at some point this spring.
