Project

Vogue 8815

What are you most proud of? The fitting. It is far from perfect. The shoulder seams sit a little too far back and the front darts need work but it cam a long way from the first time I put it on after basting when the armholes were gaping and there was a hug excess of fabric in the back. What advice would you give someone starting this project? What the entire course first. And the go back and follow along. Also, if you can get someone else to help you with you fitting. My husband is terrified of pinning me but he can reach things I can't.
