Pattern mail order 1018
This dress has taken me nearly a month, which is a eternity for me. I didn’t make a muslin (never do, will learn one of these days). Pattern was for 34” bust, I graded up to my size, which in turn became so god damn big, still is a tad baggy around my back, will live with it! After so much fiddling, design has underarm gussets (I could have omitted these). Anyways, finally made, now onto the next one!
I know my pics weren’t the best quality, quite grainy, but I hope Burdastyle sorts this out? Photos look totally crap!
