Resizing it all
ok we're totally resized. 2 sizes down. this bias thing plays a major role in dress making, remind me never to ignore it again. i had initially planned to pull apart the original bodice and just resize but i had cut off the excess material and couldn't find my working marks. fortunately the material i'm using had a spare foot or two at the end of the role and the store's policy meant i had to purchase it. i wasn't too upset it was cheap and i figured i could do something with it. turns out i used it to make a new bodice from scratch.
attached the completed waist/bodice to the skirt with pins
TADA!!! look i made a dress!!
still a little big on the top, i'll do a slanted cut and take out some
of the excess then put in the zipper.
