Waiting for a screen for my laptop
The bodice is a bit bigger than planned, somehow. Luckily, it is side laced so I can take a couple of inches out without much hassle. I also did super minimal boning on this one, and I may want to add a few more bones back. Or possibly another layer of felt or two. The bones would be cooler, however, so they may win. It was certainly comfortable, however. I set up my tent in this and tromped all over the place with no issues at all. I just need to make a few alterations so the bust stays put and I don't end up with a bit of the center front poking out.
Did I mention this is now referred to as my "Happy Meal Dress?" Thanks go to my 5 year old who exclaimed when seeing the guards in the back (which are vaguely arch like) "Mom! You're a Happy Meal!" I'm sure it was meant as a compliment.
