Front and back views:
These are photographs of different positionings just pinned on for the front panels. I went with the softer look on the right. I like the softer neckline and casing. The next gown (oh yes, there will be more) will be a different and darker color and perhaps a somewhat matching jacket or shawl will be added. The matching scarf will also be pleated.
