    Okay, I found your blog through Toy’s blog and I must say WOW! You have incredible talent. I just looked at 3 months worth of your work and am in awe. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! From the patterns to the fabric choice – truly inspiring.

    Can anyone please explain the process for attaching the contrast facing on view A of this pattern? I’ve tried for about a week to make sense of the pattern instructions, but nothing I’m doing is working. The bottom edges aren’t even reaching the bottom edges of the bodice even though I cut the pieces all according to the same size without altering anything. I’m at my wits’ end.

I love to hear Feedback!!
