I think your dress is really beautiful and it looks great on you. I'm a super new sewer (haven't made clothes yet). I'm a bit confused about your diagram. I understand the bust and the waist part. But how do you figure out how big to make it at the hips so that it fits? Am I just missing a measurement that everyone else takes for granted? Shouldn't we be measureing the hip circumference and that distance from the waist? I'm excited about making such a pretty form fitting dress.
