I had a fitting today for the very tall bridesmaid who's having the bronze dress... Remember I ordered the pattern from that very swish company in Oz? Well, because this lass is so tall, I did have to add quite a bit of length to the pattern. But other than that, I cut it out just as it came...
We need to reduce the width of the skirt at the back, and the length of
the train, but this is a style alteration rather than a fitting problem. :)
I'm dead chuffed, and can only say that all concerned (bride,
bridesmaid, AND dressmaker) are impressed with the look and quality of
this toile and pattern. :)
Coo! Haven't had one this easy to fit in YEARS! ;) And they like the
idea of the project going up on the web site, so you will all get to see
this as a blow-by-blow dress diary. :)
Now I just need to find a bronze concealed zip and a supplier of bronze
silk YLI thread...
Hehehehehehe... Another excuse to buy nice things! :)
