b4790 update....ugh!!!!

Well first things first....this dress is a little more misleading than what I originally thought. Okay, okay it was actualy all my fault. I resized everything which to me means making everything bigger. But there is a more logical and technical way of adjusting size patterns. Did I follow any of the rules ahead of time....NOOOOO!!!!! I had to do things my way which translates to the hard way. As you can see from the side of the front pattern... I had failed to make the appropiate changes which causes overexposure of my underarms. Can we say dumb!!!! So this means I have three options... 1) Leave it alone, 2) Make the appropiate changes and cut out a new front pattern 3) Make adjustments that would require some creative solutions. Hmph!!! I don't husband thinks option number 2 is best but Im' lazy (no just difficult) and I really don't see why I need to recut anything if there could be other options ;). But maybe I will take his advice and go to the fabric store which would give me a reason to get more fabric. Hmmph...When I think about it...that might be a better idea. He is so smart.

Making it happen....

Hey everyone, just wanted to update you on my project. So far I sewed the skirt together..and added the back portion of the dress. I am just wondering how I am going to treat the back since I added lining to it. But I will figure it out. Anyway here she is.
I am hoping everything works far it hasn't been hard, which makes me real happy. I will just take it one step at a time and try to do my best. Hope all is well, A.S.
