What are you most proud of? Getting the fit right: this took a duct tape dummy, a sewing buddy, many tears of frustration, and perseverance...I am NOT an easy shape to fit, especially when adapting a vintage pattern. I had to devise full bust alterations for both, which was difficult on the dress particularly because of the style lines. I messed up the pattern cutting for the dress bodice, and had to do some very very tricky pattern matching: the fabric is from Korea, and was very narrow. I ended up using cable ties inside the front neckline to keep the shape, as the fabric is very fluid! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get a sewing buddy: I could never have finished this without help, the waistline and hem caused special problems!
