Hi It did go well, but we veered away from the pattern a bit. It turned out nice, but doesn't look like the one on the pattern envelope! Still, for a very first attempt I had to be proud:smug: The pattern is from 1972 (I've attached a scan below). I've now explained to my tutor that I wish to make my current and future projects as authentic as possible. My fave era is the 1970's, and as I find it hard to get original clothes that fit me properly I think the way forward is definitely to make my own! It's the bust that's the problem! Not that I am complaining! I just wonder how the 'Carry On' film girls and Page 3 girls of the 70's managed to get clothes that fit on the bust but also on the waist and hips?
