On this dress, I omitted the lining, used bias binding for the neckline and arms, and scooped the neckline another 5/8". The hem is serged and left alone (don't you love my couture techniques?), and I have continued with my use of railroad zips over invisible ones.

And the back, showcasing the best feature of the pattern; the lovely deep back.

The hem's even, I promise. Not only did I have a run of forgetting the flash, but I was also taking photos of my dresses after wearing them all day. Cotton tends to get a bit flat after sitting for hours. However, I'm not a fashion blogger (or really any kind of blogger) so my goal is to get pics as fast as possible and get them posted.
At some point I'll have to get a close up of just the fabric, because it's stunning. I centered the bodice to get as much of one complete dragon across the front as possible. Damn, that's pretty fabric.
Boom. Sewing post. I had another name for this dress, but then I started to have a hankering for sushi, and that's that. These dresses name themselves. Mmmmm. Sushi.
Happy Hump Day!
