I'm nearing the end on the Cersei Mourning gown. I modifed the Simplicity pattern somewhat and will probably end up changing the side zip to a partial wrap by attaching a tie to the part of the bodice that wraps under and another at the side. Then more base of the bodice where the ties are on the original. This will allow it some adjustment in size if I lose weight! ;) I'll take some pictures of this as well as the sleeves, which are an odd shape, and post them later.
I'm going to wait until I finish to decide which sleeve embellisment to make. Since I'll be creating it on organza then appliqueing it I don't think it will be that hard to do post construction.
