1950's Dress - Update 2

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)

Will just need to do bias binding, attach skirt add snaps and hem. Then I'll be finished.
But that's for another weekend.
