I had an interview to attend wednesday (along with 3 other meetings for work). This picture was taken at the end of the day. I must say the dress wore well.
For the bodice I cut the largest size (22) and added 1/2″, next time i’ll do a full 1″ adjustment for more wiggle room.
I cut a size 18 for the skirt.
Question:: When cutting 2 sizes for the bodice of the dress and skirt, should I have graded down??
I ran into a few problems when I attached the top the bottom when the notches didn’t matc h up.
I made it work since I was sewing in the 12th hour and needed to get it DONE!
however in the front sides I had some extra gathering which SHOULDNT have been there. So I tossed on a belt and kept it moving.
All in all, I consider this project a success. AND the way Mr. Johnson was looking at me like I was a piece of meat, I think it was a public success 😉
