Paul Gallo asked:
I'm so happy for you! It looks great and I'm so glad I inspired you to work in 3-D. Am looking forward to seeing your dress too, Thanks.

I am working on it, will upload a foto if finished......thanks again!
Stax asked:
How did you drape the pattern without a dress form in the first place? You should really consider making a tutorial... I am very interested
judithvh answered:
i am sorry, i made a fitted bodice first off using my adjustable dressform.it wasn't easy i can tell you that, with all the gaps in that thing.i managed to get it right though by fitting and fitting again on my body.i had to make changes just till it fitted perfectly.then i went and bought a mannequin and padded it with fiberfill and shoulderpads, fitted my bodice and i was ready to go.my friend took a basic bodice from the internet and adapted it to her size and stuffed the hole thing with some sort of wool,turned out oke.
