I followed Gertie’s Sew Retro Bombshell dress course on Craftsy a few years ago. I am only getting around to posting it now. I love how it turned out. I had to do quite a lot of fitting adjustments since the bust for this pattern is very small. In the end I think I had 3 muslins. It was worth the effort though. I have more detail about the process and review of the course on my blog: http://www.mabelmakes.com/2013/03/review-sew-retro-perfect-bombshell-dress/
