I love the fabric and the color. Which top stitching are you going with? Did you try any contrasting colors?

I've decided to skip the topstitching. After being away for a couple of weeks, I'm heading into the home stretch. I'm finishing up the midriff and then getting to work on the zipper. I hope to wear the dress a week from today - eep!

Looks great!!! It looks as though you figured out the problem. What adjustments did you make?
