Simple to make?

1958

The envelope says so, but it doesn't look like it to me.  There's some underarm gusset action going on, and a whole lot of fitted bodice.  Fitted bodices are scary.  I could handle the overskirt though.

  2. You can do it! Gertie has a great post on under arm gussets that should help in demystifying them. I love this. I hope you make it so I can see how it comes out!

  3. Pretty! Fitting books must have lots of advice for exactly this type of bodice, I would think. If you want a fitting buddy, we could work on it together!

  4. You can totally make that. Gertie did a tutorial on gussets, they just look scary. What kind of fabric does it call for?

  6. Ooh the combo of the straight front neckline and the back neckline V is so nice!
