Have returned to dressmaking during the last two years and have not been very successful. I was a slimmer shape 30 years ago and am finding the fitting so difficult on my own and was wasting a lot of fabric. However, Laura, after Christmas I will try again with your help.
Lovely site by the way.
Happy Christmas, Molly
Yes, finding shapes that suit you are key I think. Maybe use a really cheap fabric and make a toile first – then you can make alterations to the fit. I know it seems long winded, but the end results is much more satisfying. I have only come round to it after after making a million messed up garments of my own!
only just found this site, and am looking around it. The patterns seem to be fairly easy. I am just beginning to do dress making.
