Slow, slow progress is being made on the wedding dress mockup . . . and time is ticking. I must confess, it’s making me a little nervous. 🙂

I’m trying something new to help my Sister draft the bodice pattern for her wedding dress. Or, should I say, something old.


Sometime ago, I picked up this ‘Designing with Dusan’ box from Goodwill. It’s the ‘New’ Magic-fit Master Pattern. Supposedly, you take all your measurements and draft the perfect pattern. 🙂

I love the idea.

I am still having fitting issues. However, I thought I would share the progress of the drafted pattern. . . .


Here it is. . . all cut out. 🙂

When I cut the fabric mockup and stitched it up, it was almost perfect. . . I say almost because for some reason it has a weird fold/collapsed spot/wrinkle above the bust and by the armhole. So, I ask the question . . . do any of you know what would cause that?

  1. My sewing is hit and miss, really, so I can’t help. Only thing I would suggest is approaching it like any other article of clothing and tailoring it to fit. Maybe a small dart??
