I really like this dress.
I started work on it last night. I decided to cut a size 12 for both the top and bottom…. taking a chance by not doing a full bust adjustment. I basted the side seams together and the bodice seems to fit so far. I also lengthened the bodice by a whole inch. I’m hoping that will work out for me as well.
This afternoon I spent about an hour with the dress. I really need to pay attention. My mistakes just this afternoon include sewing a wrong side to a right side, sewing instead of basting and mis-matching the notches. Argh. My seam ripper loves me right now.
