I'm having a serious squee! moment! I've been setting aside 1 of my five days off from work each rotation to work on sewing my wedding dress. Today, I finished the muslin copy of the bodice...and it's perfect!
I even sewed twelve buttons on the back....so I know it'll work if I use buttons rather than a zipper!
I spent probably 10 hours working on making sure all of the pieces of the bodice were tailored just to fit me. I added extra boning so it'll be strong enough to hold the skirt I want to make.
