After putting the pattern together I was able to copy it and cut the fitting one out of my paper. Seeing the fabric getting into the shape of each part made me a bit nervous. Questions like 'Did I chose the right size?' or 'Will I be able to put all parts together in the right way?' were constantly in my mind. During the following process of adding the edging to the cross I got tons of additional (or early) grey hair. It was a fiddling with all the pins and to baste it on the right position. But in the end I made the front part and it looked really nice.
A front part is not enough to be called a dress. The next really big challenge is putting the skirt and the top part together. Regarding the picture I think it looks well now. In addition I got a master in cursing and dispairing as well as the death to all miss-sewed stiches and seams.
After integrating the lining, the test run on sewing this kind of dress will be finished. I will update you with the (still missing) pictures as soon as all work is done.
P.S sadly I was able to wear this test dress only once. After the first time in the washing machine (on 'gentle wash' ) the
braid was destroyed.
