I finally finished my dress and if I can be allowed to toot my own horn a little bit, it turned out lovely. :) It looks a wee bit more retro then I was expecting, but it just makes me like it even more. I used my Christmas serger for the first time to hem the dress. Actually, the edge is serged and then rolled under. This way the fabric wont unravel because of the looped serger stitch, but the edge also has the finished look I wanted. Hope you like it as much as I do.
Terrible picture, I know. Here I'm trying to show off my serged hem. This is the inside flipped up so you can see the seam.
