costumerof2 asked:
You look adorable!!! Great Job. I always try to make dresses for myself, and they look great on the hanger but never that cute on me. I need to learn how to fit them to me. I guess.
marcy harriell answered:
thank you! i'm late in replying so perhaps you've conquered fitting by now... what changed it for me is trying the garment on, over and over. i just hate getting in and out of my clothes every fifteen minutes, but it makes all the difference!
