Sew Retro: Perfect Fit Bombshell Dress »
Type of item: Clothing

Cotton print, cotton muslin, satiny lining
What was your inspiration?
I love vintage and retro looks... Very flattering for almost everyone. The class was fantastic! Gertie is an excellent teacher and I would recommend this course highly. I learned things about fitting that are really helping me on other projects.
What are you most proud of?
I am in love with the way I got it to fit properly. It is really my size! I also like the button-in detachable strap.

What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't skimp on the muslin-making step. It is a lot of work, but essential to get the dress to fit and get the right look. Here is my muslin: http://thesewinglab.blogspot.com/2012/02/bombshell-dress-part-1.html
