    Thank you so much for this tutorial. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for! I made a long fitted dress out of fabric that wasn’t as stretchy as I thought…and walking in it felt very awkward…to the point that I was considering hacking the dress up and making something else out of it—a smaller dress for my daughter or something. Now that I’ve read this tutorial I feel empowered to modify the dress so that I’ll actually want to wear it! Thank you! (Is there a tutorial for making a back split in the bodice or adding a zipper? It’s really tough to get on and off!)
