So Far, So Good

I started sewing the Cynthia Rowley Simplicity 2497 dress late this afternoon. I got the bodice and the skirt sewn up. The zipper is on the left side and I think it will probably be sort of complicated to sew in because of the side seam pockets. I must have read the directions a dozen times, but they are a little unclear and the pictures don't seem to match what they're saying. Oh well, I can troubleshoot it later. I really like the blouson effect of the bodice.

I just started sewing this same dress and am looking for pointers on the darn zipper! it was annoying to figure out the zipper, however the first half is on. Unfortunately, I could not find a 16 inch invisible zipper and used a 14 inch. it will make the pocket hang a little funny. I love the fabric you chose. I can't wait to see how yours turns out and if you did well with the zipper.
