Description

This is a picture of my client “L” wearing a mock up of her soon to be dress. I’ve never made any thing for her size before, so I thought it’d be best to test my pattern-making skills to be sure the top half of the dress would fit properly. Well, the first time was a success! I have to do a few little tweaks and embellishments for the finish, but I am very satisfied with the results. And so was she!!
I drafted a pattern for the bodice and sleeves and just added a standard banded bottom. The dress will have an A-line hem and ruching at the waist.
I LOVE WHAT I DO, because it makes people happy!!

    I think it looks lovely on her, bespoke garments are a godsend for people for whom RTW is a nightmare, now if we could get all the larger girls out of skinny jeans and sleeveless tops and into clothes that fit and look good, how good would that be?

      RTW isn’t equivalent with skinny jeans and sleeveless tops…shouldn’t people of any size or shape wear clothes in which they feel confident and creative, regardless of the style?

      Thanks Mary! I’ll have the dress ready for final fitting in a couple of days. I’ll be sure to post the results.
