This is a dress from the Project Runway pattern I seemed to be addicted to! I’ve beed faffing about with this for a week now as it wasn’t hanging right at the back.
Then I made the two back darts longer and it seems to have solved the problem.
I think I need to get a tailors dummy now as i’m forever taking the dress on and off.
Its not perfect but I’m now happier with it.
Would appreciate any tips on tailors dummies, are they worth buying, does it make life easier etc?
