It has been a LONG time since i have done dress making, a very long time. Funny how many things on patterns i imagine to be some form of inbuilt knowledge and only teaching Fran is reminding me i had to learn them.
We aren’t doing too badly. This is for her Beatles outfit for the show she is in next month – they’ve all got to have 60’s style dresses over white dancing tights (which i haven’t bought yet!) and this looked potentially rather lovely. But with her 29 inch chest (i’m not convinced it is really that small!) and 27 inch hips and 22 inch waist, she managed to be a Medium, a small and an extra small all in one go, so heaven knows whether choosing medium will actually end up fitting!
