The detail's great. Thanks for taking the time to describe what you did.

Nice fabric choice and upper body fit! If it helps, it looks like lengthening the waist length on the bodice might help the skirt fit better. About tracing paper -just received my first order of excellent, large sheets of it from based on suggestions from a Susan Khalje class.

I think you could use your sloper on a dress form. Your detailed review has encouraged me to try it.

Thank you for your very detailed review. Your hard work will pay off for future fittings/alterations. It's also a useful source for other beginner sewists (me!) to see how patience pays off in the long run. I especially like your idea about taking shots back shots with your web cam! I'll try that too! Well done rmusic1.

The web cam is a good idea. Another might be to use a cell phone tripod and a photo app with a timer -- mine has one.

Congratulations on getting this done! I am sure you will refer to it for years to come.

This is a really good accomplishment! I just know this sloper will be so helpful to you when altering patterns to fit. I'm glad to hear that it's already helped you with your coat.

Good for you! I've thought about doing this forever, but of course the pattern is still in the envelope. You dress fits beautifully, as all you future dresses will!

Thanks for reviewing this. I'd love to see the finished shell and I'd love to know how you go applying it to patterns.
