Sort of a selfie of my Vogue caftan trial run

I took this looking into the full length mirror in the closet. Hmmm, the dress looked quite pretty when my arms were down, not so sweet in this position. Anyway, I think there is so much ease around the waist and hips that I will just make the centre front and back pieces narrower, rather than do the pleat in the finished costume. Although the fit around the neckline is better, it is still a wee bit large, so I think that I will reduce by 1 1/2 on each, rather than the 1 1/4 that I did for this trial version.

A really, really bad picture :-(
