I have recently started sewing again, and am doing a dressmkaing class and have also just started a pattern making class. I am keen to make some vintage ’50’s style outfits for myself as I have started Rockabilly dancing.
However, i have also just started a weight loss program, and am determined to lose approx 25 kg.
So my issue is that all the dresses I want to make tend to have more fitted type bodices, or princess seams, and I would obviously need to do a lot of ajusting and grading (including FBA) to get them to fit me at my current size. I am reluctant to make them, knowing that they (hopefully) will be too big within a few months. BUT I want to practice the techniques I am learning in sewing & pattern making classes so that i don’t forget them.
So my simple question is – can anyone suggest a 50’s style dress that wouldn’t be too difficult and time consuming to alter to fit once I have lost weight?
