Red Mad Men Dress

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo New Look 6000 Link to website or photo http://www.simplicity.com/p-5485-misses-dresses.aspx What are you most proud of? This was the first time I've ever sewn a sheath dress. I was a little nervous, so I made a muslin first and did a lot of pattern alterations along the way. I learned so much about altering patterns for fit from this project. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a muslin first. This is a style that will look most flattering if it fits you well. Great for girls with curves!

What you will need
