Kiwi Linen Dress

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Butterick 5485 Link to website or photo butterick.mccall.com/b5485-products-11198.php?page_id=147 What are you most proud of? The fit. I've been working really hard on fitting garments. It looks better on me than the dress form. This was my first full-bust-alteration. Worked great. Now I'm really stoked and have 5 more dressed lined up! What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you don't already know your necessary pattern adjustments, start with a muslin (cheap fabric). BTW, choose top and dress sizes based on your upper chest measurement instead of bust measurement.
