Ah, this dress..and it's a "tall" pattern...and I found the perfect fabric!
The fitting went through three stages. Here is the second. Some seams have already been taken in - the front seams, central back seam and the back seam for a swayback adjustment.
This is the second muslin. The bottom was fine so I made only the top. As you can see I constructed the sleeves ( in a rather intuitive fashion), as I envisioned the dress to have 3/4 sleeves.
Quite a nice fit! Except for the pulling around the bra. More room had to be added there.
More in the next post.
