Before I got my sewing mannequin there were a few sewing mishaps, mostly because I was just too lazy to try things on as I was sewing them. It's all a bit of a pain in the butt, especially in the winter time when you're all cozy in your fleece. The last thing you want to do is strip down to try on a dress, pin it, and then wrap up again in all your winter gear.
So, when I got my dressform I decided to really use it. I'm pretty sure this dress was the first thing I made on it because I've never made anything that fits me as well as this dress does.
Here's a close up so you can see the fit. It's actually a little too good fitting. I think I must've been having a skinny day when I made it.
I used this beautiful printed rayon fabric that I had been saving for something special:
And this is vintage pattern that I used. It's from 1973.
I dream of being as stylish as that woman in View A! Such a cool pattern~
