On the left is the back view where you can see the outer layer, which will be a full 360 degrees when it is done with a handkerchief hem. The hem will have to be trimmed down when K comes down for the fitting this weekend.

On the right you can see what the inside lining looks like. It is a simple dress with a bodice. The bodice is interlined with a tightly woven cotton so the dress provides a certain amount of support.

So far so good… I will breathe a bit easier if the fitting goes well.  If there is a problem, I will have only one week to make a fix. The big day is on the 30th.
