What are you most proud of? Fitting is usually my biggest challenge and with no more fabric available if I messed up, I needed to be right first time. So I chose the Simplicity Amazing Fit Pattern 2217. You can pick from different cup sizes for the bodice, and also for a slim, average or curvy fit. I picked the sleeveless version, C and spent a LOT of time measuring all of the pieces and reading through the very comprehensive fitting instructions before I cut anything. I eventually cut the size 14 bodice in a C cup, and the same for the skirt in average.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Want to make clothes that fit better, you could certainly give this Amazing Fit range from Simplicity a try. It worked a treat for me and I made up a dress in super quick time without the usual fitting hassles. Highly recommended.
