i nevvvvver use patterns, in fact i never have used one at all, i just think of my own ideas or see something and try to copy it.
but this is where my problem is. ive seen a lot of simplicity 3882 dresses and really have admired dress c but for some reason i just could not picture how it was made. so i bought the pattern, thinking it should be pretty easy, lots of people buy patterns
(its the reddish one on the bottom)
boy was i wrong.
i managed to make the front of the bodice but after that i became sooo lost. the directions and pieces for the back of the bodice seem ridiculously small to me and im really confused about the elastic that goes around the waist.
if anyone has made this dress at all, help would be greatly appreciated.
