The Magic of Darts! Purple Dress

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?

    Hello, many thanks for your comments… always appreciated! My Credit Crunch dress is from the same pattern too.

    The pattern is from Simplicity and there is a range called Project Runway… don’t know the pattern number sorry.

    Yes, definitive, darts had resolved your problem!! I adore the neck line cut, is unique and the color is gorgeous and looks beautiful on you. I didnt know project Runaway offers the patterns, where and how do you get them?
