Sew Over It ‘Sew along’ 1940’s Tea Dress Finished!

Last night I finally managed to get round to putting the finishing touches on my Tea Dress and now I can reveal my finished garment … YAY 🙂

My most challenging part was the fitting.  I can sew/machine sew quite well but I always fall down during the fitting phase…but I persevered and with a little help from my Mum, Hubby and quite a few pins I managed to get the fitting right.

When originally cutting the pattern I realised that my shape was different from the top, waist then hips so I had to ‘wing’ it slightly.  My bodice (mainly the front) had to be amended in a few areas which then meant that the skirt had to be amended so the seams joined at the waist.  After getting this area right I then had to slightly amend the arms too to fit the amended bodice.

So here it is:
