Yay! The cherry dress is finished. As I mentioned earlier, I started out with the Vogue pattern, but just didn't like the fit of the bodice, so I went back to one of my favorite patterns, McCall's 3243. I've already made two dresses from this pattern, including the Camille halter dress. The dress I made was supposed to have ruffles on the straps, but I omitted them for plain straps. I really like how it turned out. The only problem I had was readjusting the straps after I had already sewn them in. Thank heavens for the seam ripper!
