V8150 (front bodice)

Today I took my courage in both hands and basted my drapes. They don't quite look like the picture at the moment but I think they'll look OK once I've done the back and am actually inside the dress (it's the sort of dress that needs to be "filled out" to look like anything I think). The encouraging thing is that my machine coped really well with the gathers - I was really afraid that they'd get completely chewed up by the teeth. Next step is to start the gathers for the back drapes.

yay :)
yours is looking more promising than mine.. i need to go back to the drawing board :(
i like how you've picked a colour that means you can wear it elsewhere and no-one will even realise it's the same pattern as your wedding dress.
