Please ignore the unpressed seams and any minor creases, as clipping and pressing is my next job, but not until tomorrow as we have other plans for tonight. Also there is the toil for my dress already on the mannequin adding to the lumps and bumps showing through.
This is a lovely dress pattern, but all pieces are cut on the bias, and despite having a long cutting table, I couldn't just lay out the pattern pieces and cut, so I had to cut part of the pattern, and carefully move it all so I could cut out the next piece.
This dress is for a lady who is 5' 10" tall and has a 36F cup, so this added to my some of my problems, one being getting the length of the pattern pieces for the back on the cross grain, the other being the FBA adjustment.
The dress is designed with quite a long train, but I reduced this down quite a bit and as you can see below, I think it is more than adequate for a bridesmaid dress.
