Oh, that is gorgeous!! I love the fabric. I wish I could find lace that beautiful in my hometown.

JenF asked:
This is beautiful! I'm so excited to hear you were able to work without a second set of hands and would love to know more about that. Thanks for sharing!
Amanda Renea answered:
Well, it helped that the pattern mostly fit on it's own. The main thing was I had to sew in a zipper because I couldn't pin myself in. I moved the front darts a bit and did the armscye thing she demonstrate in the lesson. I also lowered the waistline, but it was another easy fix. It would have definitely been easier with another person and I probably would have altered more.
