The construction process was complicated by the fact that it took me a while to remember how to sew with fabric. Mesh handles differently than fabric and I'd been working with mesh for so long that I had to redo certain parts more than once.

One part that has not worked are the sleeves. Although they look fine in this photo, they sort of feel like mitts because the fabric is so heavy. I spent 3 hours just on these sleeves and at the end of the day ripped off the "ruffle" so I can rework them with a lighter fabric or lace.
