Made this as a mock-up/first draft since I don’t have a teacher around to help me out. I have some really awesome material to make this dress but I knew I’d make a couple mistakes and wanted to make the second one the nicest. I did a good job, but the waistband is too big on me and the bust line is too low, too much cleavage is just tacky unless your in vegas, which I’m not. So next time I will add an inch and a half to the bust line and make the waist band one size smaller, other wise I think the next dress will come out really great.
