The fit is looking great. I really look forward to seeing the final dress. This helps me see how my fitting should look. Thanks

Thanks everyone! I am stalled out on the underlining attachment - it is much harder than it looked in the video to get the fabric basted to the organza without bunching and with straight lines. :(

Thank you for the photos. I've just started and I'm wondering how much you added to the top of the back; was it about 2 inches?

Looking good Chrissy. Thank you so much for posting this. I'm at the muslin stage myself and I don't want to rely on just anybody to help me with the fitting. I'm thinking of paying a dressmaker for that. I'm especially hard to fit because I'm asymmetrical. Have any of you found a good means of fitting the muslin (besides the husband method!)

I've friends that have said they used to sew but trust me their idea of sewing and mine are not even close. Husband method is a complete waste of time so I just keep trying on and taking off. It is so exasperating.
