New Dress with a bodice that fits

What you will need

  • I used some beautifully green (several greens) fabric I found in the Cupboard of Dress Lengths

Q&A with Harcourti

stsandme asked:
I love this dress, you did a fantastic job for a fantastic fit. Which pattern is this? Marda
Harcourti answered:
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.
Lisa_M asked:
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!
Harcourti answered:
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.
Harcourti answered:
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.
michellec1421101 asked:
Great dress and great fit. What pattern number is this please.
Harcourti answered:
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.
Harcourti answered:
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!!!
