I am loving working on this dress! I think it's going to be really pretty...hopefully it will fit me. I can't bring myself to make a muslin yet, and I realized when I started cutting out that I'm a ten on top and 12-14 on the bottom...and this pattern only goes to ten. I think I kind of assumed that, since I'm more like a 2-4 in shops, there couldn't be that much difference...Ha. So I'm hoping it wont be booty-tight around the hips. Watching it come together has been a pleasure: the gathers are beautiful and it is my first time working with them, so they seem like magic!
