Fitting Perfection

This is a dress I created and finished for a presentation 2 hours before it was held.

I made it 100% from my dressmaker’s dummy and didn’t try it on once until it was completely finished. It was a test to prove that making clothes from an exact replica of your own body would be a success… and it was!

The dressmaker’s dummy is a 3D scanned version of my own body milled out of dense foam.

The fabric is from Mood Fabrics, and since my body is a ruler shape and I have no waist definition, I deliberately placed the black pattern near my waist to make it look narrower. The dress is so comfortable, and for the first time ever it’s not tight across the shoulders and back and the waistline is where it should be on me, not sitting two inches higher on my rib cage.

I’m definitely going to be making a few more versions of this dress.

If you are interested in getting an exact replica of yourself, the Sew Sister is available for pre-order now:
