I’ve been obsessing about this dress, the short one, for about a week. It would make an outstanding Tetris Dress if successful in recutting the top part to suit my vision.
I cut a muslin yesterday for tinkering with the pattern. I’d prefer a square neckline and I must raise the back a bit : I am approaching 50 and I can no longer let my breast free of support and no ! taping my breast for the night is not an option, I want to wear this everyday.
I spent most of Sunday afternoon scouring the web to find tutorials on bagging, machine stitching a lining to an invisible zipper, fitting a bodice, and so on…
It all looks like an incredible waste of time, but I am a lazy seamstress and I spend an inordinate amount of time trying to avoid recuts, alterations, mistakes and any hand sewing if it can be avoided.
Thanks to all the valiant people, like The Slapdash Sewist, for sharing this information online. It does help, a lot !
