So far I've copied the pattern from the dress and have started to copy it onto my grid paper.I am working on the muslin and am washing and pressing the different fabrics I'm going to use.
I'm feeling very pleased with myself as I'm resisting the urge to jump right in and cut corners. I really want the finished product to be something I can love for years to come and I it's so nice when something is made with care and attention to detail.
This is the dress I've chosen to start my wardrobe refashion with. I love the fabric and the ric rack trim but to be honoust it's a bit too dirndl which means I rarely wear it.and it doens't fit well in some places.I 've nearly finished taken it to bits.There's heaps of fabric in the skirt so I should have enough for my dress with a bit left over for accessories.
