It's beautiful, but what else would it be coming from you! I don't have a sewing buddy, so fitting is such a challenge for me.

Hello, have you thought of looking up American Sewing Guild in your area. In our guild we have a Couture Sewing Group, and when we need a fitting we call someone to help. Everyone is so willing because each time we fit someone else we learn from it. No imposition on anyone. ASG.org

Thank you! I think you just need to add fit insurance to the seams, and go from there. Thanks for your lovely comments!

The print on this dress is truly wonderful. I would love to see it on you. I can see the placement of the print would be important in the design process. Congratulations! You must do more...
