Ceylon Update

I may actually finish this dress in time for the wedding this weekend! All it needs is a hem, button holes and buttons, which I have not yet purchased. Please excuse the lighting and how frumpy the dummy looks. She was not wearing her padded bra. 
 I was really hating it mid-way through, but now I am somewhat more accepting.
 I still question the whole dropped waist look. I know some people on blogs who love it, but I don't think I have ever seen someone who looked great in one. We shall see...
Ugh, look at the flash! The back is blousy, so that I will hopefully be able to move my arms and use my shoulder blades.

Thoughts so far? I am hoping it looks better on.


  1. You're making such fast progress on this! I'm sure it will look lovely on you as all the versions I've seen of it online are very flattering. Personally, I can't get away with drop waists, but I still like them.

  2. Your dress is turning out quite nicely! Can't wait to see the finished photos. :]

  3. I really like how it looks on the dummy but can't wait to see it on you! I think the flash washed out the fabric some. I saw quite a few finished versions on some website and it looked really good on ~ so I'm sure yours will be great!

  4. I really like the shape of it, I think it will look really smart on too. Glad you've overcome your 'meh' feelings about it. It can be hard to push through that to get the garment finished and am sure it will be worth it.

  5. It's looking great! I can't wait to see it on you :)

  6. I don't like drop waists either, but who knows?

  7. It's looking great! I can't wait to see your final pictures!


Thanks for your thoughts and feedback!
