How do you wear TV101?

Hi, so this might seem like a silly question, but how exactly do you wear TV101? I've made mine, and I've tied the ties, but where exactly does one's legs go? Between the front of the petticoat and ties, so that the ties rest on the back of your thighs? Or the other way round, between the ties and t...

Re: TV420...what did I do wrong?!

just an update...I took the sleeves off and when I tried it on, that pulling on the front went away. There's still the other fit issues that Heather mentioned (i.e. waist needs to move up and the back is too wide). I found my sleeve pieces, and it looks like I made size B because my armhole measurem...

Re: TV420...what did I do wrong?!

Thanks Heather! I can see there are a number of things that just didn't fit quite right with this now. I'll have to have a play with the patterns like you suggested and see if I can get the right combination of pieces. For the current bodice, I think I'll take off the sleeves and see if that doesn't...

Re: TV420...what did I do wrong?!

Ah ha! I just had look at my measurements and compared it to my pattern pieces, and just remembered why I was puzzled by the pattern sizes. Okay, so: Back width 16" Back length 16" Waist 28" Bust 32" Armhole 16" So my back width gave me size H for back and side pieces. My ad...

TV420...what did I do wrong?!

Hi everyone, just hoping to get some advice on what I may have done wrong with this bodice. It was for a Steampunk event here in the UK recently, and I was grumpily up late sewing on buttons and couldn't even stay awake long enough to try it on and check the fit. Then in the morning, I made the shoc...

Re: Polonaise with train?

Great suggestions! thank you! I'm still not quite sure what I will do. I've ordered some fabric to make my practice polonaise and I'm hoping that after I make that I will either decide to alter the pattern to turn it into a train as suggested, or figure something else out!

Polonaise with train?

Hello, I'm just looking for some advice for my wedding dress. I really love the polonaise pattern and I'm thinking of pairing it with Tv261 underskirt. However, I just can't get over my desire for a train! I have the butterfly train pattern, but I still don't understand how it attaches to the rest o...
