What was your inspiration? I need some help from more expiernced fitters out there! I am very short waisted, and so to help with this I pinned up the top of the shoudlers by 1.5" or so. But there are other issues. I think the bodice may just be too big. I made it per the pattern measurements, but it didn't work out. I am thinking about making a smaller bodice and attaching it to the midriff and skirt that I already made. HELP - I need advice.
