This is the first fully lined dress I have made. The lining was a bit tricky to work with. I made the top part too big so had to bring it in quite a bit at the sides (since then I’ve been reading up on how to fit patterns better to the body). I’m really happy with how it turned out and plan to make another one, but this time measure myself correctly and get the fitting spot on from the start (hopefully)
