Vogue 1182

I was able to finish sewing up Vogue 1182 to wear to my nephew's wedding last weekend, even though I was sewing the hem on the morning of the big event! The fit came out just about perfect....I could have improved on that a bit with a small swayback adjustment, but all in all I was very pleased. Thanks to those who have already made this dress and posted a review on PatternReview,  I knew to take my time with all 44(!) steps in the pattern directions. Everything went together just fine, and I love the finished product!
