Hee heeee, "corral them in". I certainly won't have that issue. I plan to cut fabric tonight. Thanks for the tip on double-layering the bodice. I think I'll do that too.

I've been sewing like a mad woman since the Juki arrived. I can't tell you how nice it is to have a machine that works well.

STUNNING! You look absolutely stunning in this. I am a "firm" believer in shapers as well, and not too proud to admit it.

This so does it...I'm going on a diet...okay, on January 1st. You look so hot in that dress. And even better, I saw it in real life yesterday (not on her) but it was perfect. Great job, Jennifer.
