Project Description

What are you most proud of? I got the shoulders to fit as Barbara showed us. No longer does the shoulder seam hang over my arm. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just follow the instructions and do careful measurements. I love my body double I made with friend. I use it all the time and know that is what my body is really like, It has made fitting so much easier.

What you will need

  • Silky print fabric

Q&A with Loekie

Lady Baranof asked:
I can't wait to start sewing for my two daughters! They are beautiful plus-sized young women and a professional look is hard to come by for the younger set... This project looks perfect!
Loekie answered:
I am not a great sewist - not by a long shot. But after taking this class my confidence level is boosted. Your daughters are lucky to have you for a mom!
Barbara Deckert asked:
My definition of good fit is: " no visual lines that are not an intended part of the design." You got it! Congratulations!
Loekie answered:
Thanks Barbara - it feels really good to have something that actually fits and not to have to "make do" with what's available.
