First I found suit fabric at Jo Ann’s for $3.50 per yard, so I bought 4 yards! When I got home I knew exactly what pattern to make first, the Lisette Passport. In order to keep all of the sizes, I traced it with freezer paper. There is only 6 pieces to sew together and 4 are the bodice.
I checked the pattern envelop and cut out the dress but as soon as I finished the bodice I knew it was too small.
I started over and cut out a larger size but when I finished it was too large.
At this point I wished I made a muslin!
So third time was a charm and I made a third bodice and completed the dress.
Lesson learned, next time I am going to make a muslin.
Here are a few great sites about making a muslin...
Happy dress making!
