I am THRILLED with how this came out.
From this to this !
I still need to add straps (I'm thinking of reappropriating some black bra straps) and put the zipper in - but my friend Claudia wants to learn how to do invisible zippers so I figure I may wait to do it when she can be around to watch. I'd also like to see about adding a slip underneath as a sort of built-in petticoat. I'm saving all of that for tomorrow since both the slips and the straps are at my apartment.
