Still here (small update)

2010 July 31

but not much more progress yet.  After I posted the in progress pics of the second B5147 sheath dress, I changed the darts a little, pulling up about 1cm from below the dart and incorporating it within.  That took care of the bust drag lines.  Then I jiggered the side seams until it seemed right.  I really like the fit on this dress.  Not too tight, not too loose.  I’d like it even better if I didn’t have a pooch, but oh well.  I have about an evening’s worth of work left on this dress before I wear it. 

BUT, it is/was my birthday week and now I have a friend staying with me until Tuesday.  It’s not looking good for this little dress to be finished by Monday.  But you never know. 

Until then, happy sewing everyone!

ETA: Thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes!!!

    I was getting E withdrawals. Enjoy yourself with your friend – you can catch up with the sewing later. I just finished padding my dress form … talk about a reality check (lumps and all).

    I’m so impressed by all the care you are taking on getting the fit just right for this dress . All your efforts are definitely going to be worthwhile – a perfectly fitted sheath dress will take you anywhere!
