Gah, this dress almost killed me.

Actually, just the bodice. Stupid, STUPID method for making a bodice! (Um, this was Butterick B5017, by the way. FAST & EASY my big butt). There are four pieces and man, you have to cut exactly to make it work, I guess. I could not press the armholes the right way and finally just cut off the seam allowance and made my own seam binding to finish them. The gathered skirt was tons easier!
Still haven't finished the back. There's a button loop hidden back there, and I'll sew a button, probably white, on the opposite side.
So, is it cute? Or am I right in thinking it is a thing of extraordinary evil?
Oh, the fabric is Arcadia by Sanae for Moda. I still like it.
