I started this some time ago and now I've finally finished what I started. I didn't think I'd be able to do it. I know how I am and I'm quick to move a challenge to the back burner to be dealt with later. I finally finished my dress. Technically, speaking this is a super easy dress to sew. It doesn't take any special knowledge and it isn't a difficult design. What was challenging for me was the FBA (or full bust adjustment). I always need to do one, yet I rarely do. I never want to take the time. This time, I armed myself with Debbie Cook's FBA instructions, a copy of Fit For Real People, a bunch of tape, tracing paper, rulers, pens and some liquid courage.
It was really intimidating to cut into that pattern piece, not because I was afraid I'd ruin it, I only paid a buck for the pattern. I was afraid I'd ruin it and I wouldn't know how I'd ruined it.
All in all, even if the dress hadn't been fit to wear, I'd have learned something and that was worth the money and the time spent. Now I feel like making another wrap style dress and doing all of the necessary adjustments, why not?
