and she must care about wedding dresses. :)
I adjusted all the darts to get the center back edges of the bodice and skirt to line up. I basted it all together and basted in a zipper. Susan came over for a fitting.
Well, I suppose it could still be a smidge tighter (she could breathe), but I think I'll leave that adjustment for the buttons. ;)
It hangs beautifully.
I don't have to re-order & re-cut the lining, and I'll be able to use my existing muslin as pattern pieces to cut the underlining and silk - all I have to do first is adjust the darts.
I'm kind of in shock and still waiting for it to sink in. But I definitely feel a smile growing from deep inside... :)
