Holy Camoly I actually started to deconstruct my dress. Very odd since the week before I was wearing it and LOVING it.
I have taken the inner dress out and separated the bodice from the bottom of the dress.
Being under all of that fabric was toasty. No wonder my assistant was trying to snuggle up to me. She did not make ripping seams any easier. I found her this week sleeping on the dress in my sewing room. She must be a fan.
