Sewing Progress: Tania Tabard - Style Arc Patterns

I've made quite a bit of progress on my Tabard!  So far, I'm very pleased with the pattern, and how everything is coming together.  Here is the fabric I chose.  I think it goes well with the design of this pattern.

I have most of the construction done.  I need to do the hems and enclose the armholes with the binding.  I also want to stitch down the neck facing.

If there's anything I'm displeased about with the fabric, it's how tough it is to get it to give up a wrinkle!

I'm even loving the drape, though I admit it gave me a bit of a puzzle in getting it attached correctly to the tabard.  Once I get the finishing touches done I will post pictures of the finished piece on Betsy, my ever patient dress form, and maybe even on me.  Thanks for tuning in to my progress!
