finished the bodice!!!
we did it with piping so it was kinda a pain in the butt
and we didnt have like the pre-wrapped piping, it was the kind that was like filler piping that u wrap with fabric
yet its sooo pretty!!!
im in love with the pattern!!!

I just made this today... (it took me about 7 hours)  This was my first time using a pattern. This dress was just a "test" to make sure I know how to follow a pattern.. lol  I had to make the waist bigger, because my pattern only went up to a 32" waist. (do they have them bigger??) I also altered the top a little.. so I don't flash anyone. :>   Anyway, I think it turned out ok. Smiley  I'm not 100% finished with it. I made add bows or something to it.

- The line going through the waist is just a crease.  I didn't bother ironing the fabric before sewing the dress.. oopsie  Smiley

i made this dress about a month ago and was very happy with it, but seeing as i am so small i had to alter the bodice a bit but it turned out really well!

i also made a jacket thingy to make it look even more like a 50's housewife dress but i havent gotten a picture of it yet

By far to me that is most beautiful one~!

I dont like how it looks on me. my boyfrien suggested taking some of the gathering out. grr. It's taking forever to finish this thing (mostly just because I bought the wrong size - one size too small)

I too hated how it looked on me.  I'm gonna try taking the gathering out, possibly using two panels instead of three.  If that still doesn't work then I'm going to try it with a longer bodice section.  I have such a long torso, the skirt flares out before my waist and just looks weird.  And if that still doesn't work, to the scrap pile it goes!
