2nd Fitting - BWOF 10/2010 128 Dress - Part III

After making the adjustments, my sister came by for another fitting. It fits much better. Now I can do the top stitching.




Previously, I thought the side panels didn't quite match and my be a problem with fitting in the waist area. But after I made the size adjustments, the fit issues disappeared.




I wanted to see how the sleeves would look. We slid them on to get an idea. It looks okay. They are a little long. I added about two inches to the length. That plus the hem allowance is tucked in. NOTE: There is some pull across the chest; This will disappear. She wearing a lot of "winter gear" underneath the dress.

I love the "Just take the picture already" look on your sister's face. It is exactly the look my sister would have.

I thought this dress was fascinating when I saw it in Burda mag, but I also thought it looked tricky to sew. It looks like you are going to pull it off. Can't wait to see the finished picture! Very high fashion.
