I couldn't figure out why I was having so much trouble pinning the hem of this dress! I was looking down at my work, rather than up at Kami - who had placed her hands on her hips - thereby changing the hem by a good 1/2". I had to start over three times before I realized what was going on.
And here it is. We considered adding trim, but we were unable to find what we wanted in Platteville - so she'll accessorize on her own. She'll be wearing the dress to a wedding later this month. I DO hope to get a picture of her at that time. :)
