Too tight – V1020

So after making the top View B, at ASG in September I thought it would be cool to see how the dress version would work out. I decided to use a green brown poly cotton print to deal with the close fit and my bumps/curves.


This is the photo used on the pattern.
Maybe with some photoshop work – nah.

So I did the roll shoulder adjustment, lowered the front neckline (really), added some butt room and still had to add a side piece for comfort.

Yes. Too tight. So I’ve learnt a few lessons here. The main one is don’t glue dresses on when you’re not 20 anymore 🙂

By the way, thank you to Aroura from PR review for helping me with my lack of photo linking knowledge. You’re a real gem.

24/10/2010 – I’ve now added a 5cm piece down the side with the zipper and it fits, without looking like it’s been spray painted on. 🙂 I’m happy with it now.


  1. Shame. It looks quite fine in the photo, but you need to feel confident in it. Perhaps you can team it with a jacket or long-line cardigan in winter.
