blocks sorted

So, the bodice blocks have been transferred to card. I always do up one front with a shoulder dart so I can do princess line and yokes if I want...and one underarm dart because it is the one I use most often.

I also worked to make the one piece dress from the bodice block. So, I traced the lower skirt portion onto this card. I had run out of pink, and had nothing with more than one colour (except yellow, which I want to use for my jacket) so I combined the pink offcuts with some pale green.
Now I have traced off a dress pattern and adapted it to princess line. I am going to make a trial run dress in a summery fabric. I need a summer dress. Then I can proceed with part 1 of the secret project.
