I don't think we spent more than 45 minutes fitting the muslin. I think it went so quickly because her mom had taken such precise measurements to start with and she and her daughter both had a good eye to how the gown should fit. We collaborated the following year for another gown, but someone other than her mother measured her that time (and that woman could sew) so my pattern preparation and muslin was WAY off...the woman had noted in her returned measurements, "I added room to grow"...for an evening gown?? and I had to guess a lot on the initial pattern prep. That internet fitting took over three hours. I have the fitting pictures, and if I ever find the finished gown pictures I'll review it because the fabric was incredible and it turned out beautiful. And I learned a lot more about fitting!

Oh my, what a wonderful story about the new uses of internet technology. I love the long distance fit session story. About how long do you think you spent online doing that fit session? Great idea, and well done, well done.

maybe you can teach an online class here at Patternreview about sewing on the bias. Great job!

Well, you're clear-sighted, goal-oriented, and obviously a genius! The mom ain't no slouch, either. This dress is gorgeous, just lovely. Congratulations to you all on this wonderful, joint effort. And, my, aren't human children beautiful?

Incredible! This is just the ultimate! Thanks so much for this review -- the dress is drop-dead-in-your-tracks stunningly beautiful! I love the color! Your work is beyond description! I can't imagine what this means to that lovely young girl, but you've earned extra stars on your crown when you get to Heaven!

Unbelieveable how you can sew long distance and fit everything perfectly. What in inspiration to aspire toward that level of skill. Beautiful dress as usual!

This is a beautiful dress and a beautiful gesture. I love the ruching or gathering in the back. What a knock out.
