I'm Late, I'm Late!!!

It's just about zoo ball time and I have to get my dress together!!! So I wanted to let everyone know, just in case you are looking, that there won't be a Fabulous Free Pattern Friday or Sleeves On Saturday post this week. Here's a very quick and very badly drawn picture of my dress. 
And here is the fabric. The zebra print will be the main portion of the dress and the black leather look fabric will be the bustier that is under the dress. I'm having a great time with it, I just need to get it finished!
I'll try to post my progress as I go along. The fitting is finished, the hardest part, so I am cutting and getting ready to start sewing.
You aren't going to believe this in a million years, but I used Butterick 5678 as the base pattern.
I used the already drafted collar from this post,
and then drew in my style lines.
I'll keep you posted.
By the way, last week I asked if anyone could figure out where I used the fabric for last Friday's FFPF post. Marie-Noelle Lafosse immediately knew and was the first to post the answer. So Marie-Noelle, email me so we can talk about the little gift I would like to send your way, sewbussted@yahoo.com. Everyone really pays attention!!! I was so surprised :)

    1. I had thought I might wear some black jet and rhinestones, but now that the dress is coming together, I think I am going to wear something a little more tribal in origin.
