I spent the entire week making this dress coming home from work and working on it for a few hours every night. I should just double the time I think something will take to make because nothing is ever a quick sew.
I really liked the way it turned out! I didn't get a picture of the full dress at the wedding, just an awesome selfie in the mirror.

You can tell from this picture that the bodice band is too big at the top. This is because I didn't follow the pattern. See below in my sewing notes.
I used Simplicity 2176 for the bodice. I did not follow the pattern for the top band and therefore bodice was too long. Lesson learned. I used Simplicity 2512 for the skirt. This is my new favorite skirt pattern. I love the tulip shape and the pockets are the best!!
