|Here are some details about my project:|
What materials did you use? I used a heavier woven cotton, a little heavier than average muslin. It's a very subtle pale peach paisley pattern.
What are you most proud of? While I still need to take some out of the side seams, and perhaps deepen the front darts a little, this is the best fitting bust I have sewn for myself in a long time. I've also just recently got back into sewing, watching Barbara's class made this very easy.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time with the fittings. Once you get this pattern to fit exactly, you can use it for many different style. You will have a well-fitting bodice that you can use to make alterations to other patterns. Don't be afraid to experiment, and have fun!
