Sew Along update - the bodice is finished!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  I got to spend some quality time with my two favorite boys so it was a great one for me!  :)

So I am a bit behind on my dress as I have been crazy busy planning this Winter Fest party but I did manage to finish the bodice over the weekend.  I got a bit held up though - you know the cliche "my dog ate my homework"?  Well, my son chewed my facing pattern piece.   I thought the pattern pieces were safe on my couch, but my son decided at that moment to learn how to pull himself up on the couch, grab the pattern and stick it in his mouth!  The funny thing is, I was so excited he pulled himself up, I didn't even care that a piece of my pattern now looked like mush. :)  So after drafting a new facing piece, here is what I have so far:


So far so good!!  I love the fabric so much and I'm hoping to finish it in time to wear to the party!
