New Dress!!

I have now finished my new wool dress!! Well, it's more like my new wool bodice! I made the skirt last year with another bodice, that did not turn out as well as I had wished. This year I made a new bodice out of the same wool that I used last year. This year's bodice had a straight waist and slim cut sleeves with a double puff cap on them. It was trimmed in burgundy velvet ribbon on the bodice and the lower part of the sleeve. I really like how this one turned out! I did wear this dress to our annual Dicken's Holiday and placed third in the costume contest. I have quite a few holiday events that I plan on wearing it to this year, since it is my only nice winter dress.
