It's Beginning to Come Together...

You all know I'm having Easter Dress Contemplation. Well, I've narrowed the dress pattern (and the petticoat pattern, too, but forgot to scan that one) to a melded variation of View 1 and View 2 from this vintage Simplicity.

Dress - Flocked Green Floral
Accents - Organdy Flock Dot
Petticoat - Organdy Flock Dot with the Crinolin

I spent two hours on the collar alone tonight - organdy does not want to maneuver very well around curves, even as a bias. Let's hope the rest of my shady vision for a final outcome turns out well enough.

Going back to the thread & needle... will let you know when I come up for air.
