This looks like a weird ladder thing, but it’s going to be a bodice, I swear.
(I’m slightly bummed the fabrics don’t photograph well, though. But I already had the navy fabric and didn’t want to buy different navy fabric. In real life it’s pretty gorgeous, though. And soft. SO SOFT. I might even wear my chiffon malco modes petticoat with the finished dress and up the soft factor. And the poof.)
