I had high hopes of making my own dress to wear to an outdoor wedding this summer. The dress was to be green, linen and strapless.

The big side bow turned out nicely.

There were some imperfections along the way.

The largest of which was the top, it was too big. And even with boning, I could not get it to lay correctly against my body.
