Last week I sewed the "Polka Dot Day Dress" from Gertie's Ultimate Dress Book. Unfortunately, even having made a muslin, the dress was a little too baggy in the bust area. So, this past weekend I made a Small Bust Adjustment (SBA) to the bodice pattern.

I plan to recreate a Vivienne Westwood dress, with some fabric I already have in my stash and a McCall's pattern, M7315.

Maria from the Stitched In Sweden podcast also inspired me to give bra-making a go! I've signed up for the Craftsy Class, Sewing Bras: Construction & Fit ... and ordered two bra-making kits from TailorMadeShop.com ... and downloaded the Marlborough pattern from Orange Lingerie. Super excited to get started!!
