Semi-formal dress muslin: Version 1.1

Two pics here...

DD#2 has not tried on V 1.1 yet. I just finished attaching the new upper front to the dress last night. I think the style of 1.1 will be much more flattering on her figure. The deep v-neck will narrow her upper chest and shoulders, the curved midriff band will be slimming design detail.
The next fitting is tonight, after dinner.

My mobility is returning! After a very sore Wednesday and Thursday, my incision is healing nicely and my right upper back/shoulder area is feeling really fine. It was difficult cutting a new front Wednesday night with my rotary cutter. I was trying to use more of my body weight than arm weight when cutting the new front. The fabric was single layer and thin so that was good.

Very sweet dress, very feminine, which I always like.

I actually like both versions of 1.0 and 1.1. Cool numbering system you have going. lol! BTW, I'm glad you are healing. Hope you're feeling better and back to normal. :)
