Help needed

Here is my dream dress!  I know you've seen it on my blog before.

I was shopping at the mall yesterday and saw a lime green knit dress just like this one.  The one at the mall was not exactly the same but it was close enough to remind me of Vogue 1531.

I fell in love with this pattern all over again.  So I have to make it.  I have to, have to, have to!!!

More fitting issues but a different project. SMH!

I made this bodice muslin a long time ago.  My birthday is coming up and I would like to wear this dress.  

The neckline is too big.  What should I do?

I think the back looks good.  Right?

Fall Sewing Plan:  There's 30 items on my list.  That's not realistic.  My head is spinning just thinking about it.  I am going start over.  I might make a capsule.  Oh that's a great idea.


  1. Found your blog from your PR thread! I just love reading planning posts. :) I'm sure you'll get the help you need on the neckline question over there.

  2. Thank you KS! I love PR and all of the members are very helpful.
