This is going to be a short post on here as I made a much more detailed one on my blog about sewing my first official dress! I used this popular retro butterick pattern B5478 , paired it with a lovely polished cotton that I picked up at a second hand store for a bargain (it has these adorable little strawberry plants against navy blue)
The process of sewing this dress went off without a hitch until the very end. I even used tailor’s tacks to make sure my darts would all be even! I was incredibly excited when this was the final result.
It turned out lovely…light weight …fun…swishy and almost perfect! Why almost? Because I got all the way to the end put the zip in …got ready to put it on and realized that I made a huge mistake. I got it to zip up just fine…until it hit the bottom part of my full bust. I had no idea that I would need to do a Full Bust Adjustment …how did I not realize this when I am fairly certain I have read it before? No clue…it just slipped my mind. My bust is 8 inches larger than my upper bust so I am going to re-do this dress using an FBA and see how it goes. Check out more details on my new blog 🙂 as always thank you for reading and being such wonderfully talented individuals!
