Beautiful job with the dress and the photography! Just wonderful. You make the best model for this kind of work.

Such a cute dress on you. You have styled it beautifully too!


Another pretty dress along with the green one on your last post. Seems like you whip them out so quickly. What’s your secret 😉? I would like your opinion on this problem issue that I have-I’ve sewn a few dresses in the past , and it is correctly cut out to my size but when I try it on the back bodice always gaps with extra fabric. I can’t cut it smaller because then it will fit to small. I’ve gone online to try to find the problem but no luck. Any advice? Thanks any help would be appreciated!

Irene - It usually takes me 4 days from cut out to finishing a dress. Some times I am more productive than others - I only made one dress in January and none in February, but March and April I was in a sewing mood and got a lot done.

It's hard to tell without a picture what your problem is, but my guess is that you need to shorten the bodice back when you cut it out.


Thanks Kristen, I will try that on my next dress.
