What materials did you use? White shirting with Swiss organdy for the collar

What are you most proud of? Well, I am not adept with my ruffler attachment so had to do the ruffle the old-fashioned way, with gathering stitches. The stiffness of the organdy made it a bit cumbersome but it turned out okay.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? To make this dress pattern into a top, you need to fold out a lot of fullness. I also had to add 2 dead darts in the neck edge to eliminate gaping. Other than that, it was easy peasy.

Hi Cissie; Love this blouse. I'm also interested in reading about your experience with the custom made Wolf dress form. I am thinking of going to NJ to have one done for myself. Is it worthwhile?

I really like my dress form. However, even though it helps with fitting, nothing is quite the same as your own body. The form isn't "squishy", if that makes sense, so something that fits snuggly on the form is usually just right on the body.
