Go on, join in, you know you want to ;)
Today I pieced together all 86 odd pages to make my base dress pattern.
I had another change of mind (hey, females are allowed to do that!) and now we have Butterick 5462 on the go!
It's quite a simple pattern, I'll add ruching to it on a slight diagonal on the waist area somewhere - still to be decided. Ohterwise I'll leave the waist as is, and do a beautiful tight gather all over the bust/bodice which will be gorgeous. I also have the PERFECT brooch to put on the back - from my late nana, so that'll be my something old/something borrowed.
It was a LOT of work piecing all the bits together, but it's very satisfying to look at the amazing flared skirt parts to the pattern and think wow I'll be wearing that.
Thsi was one part. *groans*
Now comes the fab part. Testing it out in muslins. adding bits here and there. seeing how it fits.
The wedding isnt until august, but I intend to get the main pattern sorted in advance so I'm not too stressed close to the time of the wedding trying to decide how I want the dress, as well as making it!
Giddy as a child in a candy store - that's me!
