i wanted to pop in and say "hello" and because i felt obliged to follow-up to provide more information.
i'm working on the day-shift. though i don't like to speak negatively about a design, i must say that this dress really has no shape at all. and the "belt" that i scratched has nothing to do with it. i know it's not supposed to be fitted. maybe if i tighten up the bodice where it attaches to the skirt? this is definitely where my inexperience with apparel shows.
perhaps it's that i'm short and curvy? regardless, the sizes run much too large.
i'll finish it because my main goal was to have a "practice" piece for bodice and sleeves, not an easy thing to do when your heart has slipped out of your work.
i think i'll make another bag after this. i'm pretty good with those. lol!
