I’ve been working on my bodice for my 1900 widows weeds. This is my inspiration.
I got it from a book I borrowed from the library. It has the pattern pieces that you have to enlarge.
It has been difficult. I haven’t got this enlarging thing mastered. The pieces were either to big or to small. They also lacked in instructions on how to put the thing together. So I’m now flying by the seat of my pants…almost more of a draping exercise than an enlarging original patterns exercise. We will see how far we get tomorrow.
