Crepe attacks!

I'm struggling with my gran's old sewing machine - it keeps jamming - but I managed to make some progress on my dress this weekend. The pattern is by Colette Patterns (Crepe).

Yes, I couldn't stand to cut up the beautiful pattern so I've made a copy of my size.

There are a few bloggers who have attempted this pattern who recommend making a lining. That's a bit beyond me so I've just used the facing pieces from this pattern.  There are little facing pieces around the selves and around the neck and back.

Oh, yes, those are my fave brown boots in this pic.  The bodice is coming together nicely.
