I finally finished. Although I might redo the hem- but for my own purposes let's just call that finished. There are some things about it I would still definitely change, but for one of my first efforts at reconstruction I must say I think I did pretty well.
I know it kind of looks insanely short, but you should know that I have crazy long legs and there's still a good deal more under the dress before my crotch, and it gets longer in the back. So no worries. Also ignore my awkward facial expression etc, I didn't feel like spending too much time on these pictures- it was like 9 and I hadn't eaten dinner yet.
