Oh my gosh that is perfect on you! I really like the front vent and think it adds a neat design twist. Very flattering on you.

Re Becca said...
Gorgeous! Totally perfect fit! I have this cut out and I agree wiht you about the neckline looking wide. As the pattern is, the inner edge of the neckline lines up with the bust point so it will be need to be altered on most people.

This is very flattering. I suppose the front slit could be converted to a pleat or an inset in the back with pleating that mimics the detail on front...just some ideas for the malfunction issue. You've done a beautiful job.

If you google "Gladson Limited" there is interesting info about that textile company.

Two very chic dresses; the purple is my favourite. Your work is impressive. I think you should upgrade your skill level to Advanced.

Great dress!

Re Becca said...
Even more stunning than the first! I have to ask, how did you make the center front seam disapear? Did you tak it completely out of the body and only have the pleating in the top overlay?

cindyann said...
The fit is just perfection!

Re Becca - the front seam is still there, but for some reason it doesn't show well in the photo. If you zoom in you can very faintly see it below the bust.

Your dress is so beautiful. The fit especially on the back, is to die for. Well done.

How do you do a broad back adjustment and a narrow shoulder adjustment? I have the same problem!

clothingengineer said...
sewnotwork - I ended up not needing the narrow shoulder adjustment so I'm not sure if how I did it is "correct". I did my broad back adjustment 1/2 way down the back armscye, and just continued sloping the line inward for the narrow shoulders. I admit I just draw the line freehand. Maybe this drawing better explains it:
