Here's my nearly finishedA colossal failure!
Crepe Crap Dress from Gertie's Sew-A-Long.
Paid way too much money for fabric CHECK
Made a proper muslin CHECK
Drafted a bodice pattern with corrections CHECK
Hand basted each piece to a lovely piece of silk underlining CHECK
Sewed lovingly over two months CHECK
Finished the skirt with french seams CHECK
finished the bodice edge with lovely seam binding CHECK
tried on for final fitting WTF???
An uncut paper bag would have fit better.
I have no idea what happened. I suspect an error was made in the pattern drafting. I tried to fix it by taking in three inches on the side seams and one inch on the shoulder seams, but I've made a mess of the entire bodice.
I'm so, so sad and frustrated. How can one make such a mess of a simple wrap dress? I really splurged on the fabric, and it's so pretty. I'm either going to completely remake the bodice or I'm going to make a wrap skirt out of it.
