The plus side is the blue and grey are the same pattern, which I opened and pressed. Since they are the same piece with and without darts, I will be able to baste the darts, see if it screws up the stripes, and then go from there.
It also has a pattern for a 3/4 length blouse, which I think I will make at some later date.
Since the fabric is so stretchy, so you think I could omit a zipper and just pull it over my head?
This is OUR dress now, so feel free to chime in with advice and judgement! :)
Also, Andrew and I just made a new raised bed in the back yard and planted green beans. It's now pouring, so maybe I'll have pictures tomorrow!
