What are you most proud of? I completed it! It was definitely a challenge, but by using the tips I learned in Sew the Perfect Fit, I was able to make it work. I think I went through about 3 different muslins before sewing the dress with the fashion fabric.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would recommend listening to and reviewing all of the lessons on Sew the Perfect Fit first and then go back and sew along. I found some lessons were more pertinent than others for me, but I did learn something from every lesson, regardless of what the fit issue was.

The dress is so pretty and it fits you wonderfully! Thank you for letting us know you went through 3 muslins first. I hope that I can get my dress to fit as well as you did.

It definitely takes a lot of patience! But, in the end you have a custom-fitted pattern that you can use over and over again.

Flattering style and fit on you. The belt is a perfect addition. Thank you for sharing that you did 3 muslin garments before getting this great fit. It will encourage me to know the results is worth the effort and I will have extra fabric on hand.
