Outcome & Notes (Dress 002)

Note

The waistband has 2 inches ease, so initially I thought the dress was a bit loose in the waist and that I should have made it more fitting.  However, I find that when wearing it all day and if sitting for a long time, this extra ease is needed.

This is incredibly helpful. I am a self-taught seamstress. I have altered so many patterns and even attempted drafting my own and then manipulating them to make patterns. But there are things I did not realized till now (I knew about contouring for large necklines and cutaway sleeves, but did not realize the changes made to sleeves garments and the empire waist - but it all makes perfect sense). I will be studying this site so much. Thank you again.
