What are you most proud of? I now have the perfect pattern for me in a style I just could find in a commercial pattern. I have adjusted the pattern as I went so I can make it anytime without fitting through the process too much.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure that your drafted pattern is symmetrical. Where there are darts or pleats, only completely undo one side until you can mark dart legs or pleat directions. As you unpick the dress, take note of the construction order, so you know the sewing order.

I really like this too. The wide band helps to narrow the waist I think. At least it used to on me. I haven't worn anything fitted in a long time. I may just have to try it again.

Hi Sarah, Great project. What pattern did you start with?

09/09/2014 Flag

Never mind, I see that you recreated it from a dress.

One more question Sarah, is the bodice crossed (2 pieces) or just gathered at each bust (1 piece)?
