I'm learning an important lesson about palettes. I love this color, but I don't have anything to wear with it (without looking like a cheerleader). I should have picked a color that was more muted, so it would play nice with others.
Here's a shot of the inside, which I'm more proud of than the outside:
This was a good learning experience, definitely. I finally used some of the foot attachments my mom gave me, to some success. I'll definitely be using a hemmer foot again. But hemming lining fabric? Screw that. Not fun, not fun at all.
This also taught me that I would LOOOOOVVVVE a serger. Finishing all the seams with bias tape looked good, but not every garment wants that much extra weight on the inside. I also need a serger so I can turn these tissue paper cut-outs into fabric curtains:

Imagine trying to hem THAT.
