Sew Retro: Perfect Fit Bombshell Dress »
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Formal / Bridal
Japanese cotton, poplin
What was your inspiration?
This is the finished dress from Gerties Sew Retro course on Craftsy. I must say that I would never have picked this pattern from Burdastyle to make for myself because its just not what I would have gravitated towards. Im so glad I did the course though, because I ended up with a dress that flatters and that I absolutely adore. The course was good fun and I learned a whole tonne of dressmaking techniques that will help me way into the future.
What are you most proud of?
The red japanese cotton was just perfect and it fit like a dream. I'm also proud that I struggled through the muslin and came up with a perfect fit. I almost cried, but glad I struggled though.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make sure the muslin fits well.
