Success! The first fitting with Miss W has come and gone without a hitch. Only a minor adjustment in the bodice needed. The next step is to take apart and recut so the pieces can be used to mark and cut the dress fabric. I'll also be adding boning to the foundation to make it nice and stiff and secure.
The next fitting should be a lot more fun; the dress will actually look like a dress! I know Miss W is looking forward to it, and so am I!
