It was a bit tricky to cut the correct size as I am a 12 on the bust, 12/14 on the waist and 14/16 at the hip. Fingers crossed all goes to plan!
I used a rotary cutter to cut the crepe de chine as it was quite slippery, that worked quite well. I also decided not to cut the facings out of the same material as it is very slightly see through. I plan to use a soft cream material for that.
