Almost There

No doubt this is because it’s a sun dress and made to have a bit more ease. In an effort to get the look I want, I’m taking 5/8″ off on each side. The skirt portion of the dress has been assembled and since the top layer of material is so sheer, I’ve done French seams all around. Here’s what I have so far:
