      Thank you groovymama! One of the best things about sewing for ourselves is being able to control the fit, don’t you think? :D

    So love it! And your blog post totally cracked me up too! hahaha I have that Butterick pattern and was hoping to make up the wiggle dress for Christmas parties this year. I might have to do a similar kick-pleat details as yours – it`s so adorable! Good job!

      Thank you madyb! I don’t have much boobs to flaunt, so I guess I flaunt the back instead with the open back.. hahaha

      Thank you! I think I really started to love sewing clothes when I discovered that I could alter them to fit my non-model body measurements hehe..
