Sewing up a few things...

 Several weeks ago my daughter asked specifically for this dress to be created. She loved the dress she saw it in a cartoon and loved it.
 Large skirt or slack hook and eyes are on the choker and the cuffs.
 Also started were two dresses for myself. The pattern on the left is just below. A scrap with the custom necklace.  Below is the other dress (pattern) on the right. both dresses are fully lined, shier fabrics with slip fabric underneath as the lining.

 This looks so much better on. The Zipper is done in an invisible zipper technique. Hook and eye. Not perfect but acceptable to me.
Lining is sewn to side seams in skirts. 
Hand hemmed with delicate single thread picked up on each pick up.
 All of the back of my sons old quilt was removed to replace the backing.

 The ironing board cover was replaced.
