Constructing the skirt...I didn't want to make the hem too short in the front so I nixed the hi-lo idea and just made it assymmetrical.
I used the lining of the skirt as the lining of the bodice.
Connected the bodice to the skirt.
Attached the sleeve to the bodice.
The model, Libby, is a friend of mine and she is just helping me out. I told her she has the exact body type of a stereotypical runway model. She said she had considered modeling in high school but was too afraid of the cattiness of the industry. She is a "Senior Intern" in the Catholic Studies Leadership Interns program. You go girl!
