Fit is Key

Patterns are not perfect. At least they aren't on me. The other day I made this dress, and when I was all done, I put it on, and it was HUGE. Here is what it looked like before ...

And here is what it looked like when I fixed the bodice. 

By altering it so that it's more form fitting it makes it look more ready to wear, and less home made. Fit is the key! I have to be better about trying on my garments (with the proper undergarments!) along the way. Putting it over my sports bra and t-shirt isn't going to work anymore. I need to stop being lazy, and try it on properly! Nothing's worse than finishing a garment and finding out it doesn't even fit well. Lesson learned!
