Keep on going. I have made as many as four fitting shells to get the perfect fit.

Congratulations! Are you happy with the fit?

I am, but I really didn't try any of the class ideas to make it fit. I just shortened the bodice straight from the patter because I am short.

So glad you got a good fit without a lot of adjustments. Your fabric selection is lovely and the handbag makes the outfit perfect. Enjoy wearing it and feel proud of your doing the class.
