My Hazel dress

Have you guys forgotten about me? I feel like I haven't updated in a long time! As I mentioned in my last post, things have been pretty rough in my personal life, but on the bright side I think things are starting to look up. THANK YOU so much for all the sweet comments, text messages, and e-mails. It really warmed my heart to hear from you. xo.

I finished my Hazel dress a little over a week ago and took photos this weekend. Tomorrow I plan on wearing the dress out and about, I'm excited!

 
I LOVE the pockets!!

Just holding up the fence in my yard. Sorry for the terrible scenery, it was hard to find a place with decent light. Should have planned better!

 Back.

 Close up of the front.

This is the first zipper I have done that I am really happy with. I always have trouble with the bottom piece sticking out and being really obvious, but on this one it's not noticeable at all. Yes!

Is anyone else still working on their dress? We pushed back the date for the Hazel Parade a bit, so hopefully that will give some of you time to finish up. I needed the extra time, so I can't complain :) Now, I'm off to the Flickr group to post photos and check out the other Hazels. Happy Monday!
