So with help from mum I have:
Cut out the fabric
Tacked and sewn the darts
Sewn the skirt
Attached the shoulders of main dress
Had a little trouble with getting the tension on the skirt right.
So here is the dress as it stands.
(I decided I'd prefer the round rather than 'V' shaped wrap round.
If I do the dress again, I'll try the 'V' shape)
But that's for another weekend.
