Fit and Flare Dress Part 1 of 2 (S1FFD)

Every woman looks great in a dress that flairs out from their waist and falls below their knees. We will start by making a toile (a muslin fitting) for the bodice to get the perfect fit.

After correcting your pattern to fit you, you will cut, sew and refit your dress so that when you insert the zipper and finish the hem, your dress will look ten times better than anything you can buy at the store.
