I used some beautifully green (several greens) fabric I found in the Cupboard of Dress Lengths
Q&A with Harcourti
I love this dress, you did a fantastic job for a fantastic fit. Which pattern is this? Marda
Thank you Marda. I am very pleased and wore this to see Annie last night!!! I used Simplicity Amazing Fit 1652 for the bodice, I made the neck scoopy and I drafted a full circle skirt.
You did an amazing job on this dress. The fit and proportions are lovely. I wasn't sure if I was going to take this class, but I think your dress sold me!
Dear Lisa, thank you so much!! I had so much trouble with my FBA and this class taught me where I was going wrong, and how to fix my problems. Kathleen is also very encouraging and helpful!!
Joanna Y asked:
Good job! Fit perfectly.
Oh thank you SewGoodMum, it is so nice top wear a dress where the bodice actually fits me, instead of buying one four sizes too big and trying to alter it.
Great dress and great fit. What pattern number is this please.
Dear Michelle, thanks so much for your kind comment!! I wore my dress yesterday. Again. I could live in it. I used the bodice of Simplicity Amazing Fit #1652 and scooped out the neck a little lower. I drafted a full circle skirt instead of the gathered shirt as I had 5 metres of material.
Nicole Tee asked:
Wow! Great job! Fits perfectly from top to bottom, especially the skirt drapes perfectly with the fullness of the skirt.
Thanks Nicole, I am so very pleased with the fit. I learned how to do a proper FBA and how to make the waist and rib cage fit at the same time. It is my favourite dress, I had enough material for a full circle skirt!!!
