School Formal Dress Toile #1

Today I started working on the toile for my daughter’s school formal dress.  I’m using a Butterick pattern for the base with some slight changes. It’s looking good so far, just need to make the necessary fit adjustments to the pattern, ready to make another toile before I cut into the actual (gorgeous!!!) fabric.

I thought it’d be fun to post updates from start to finish to record all the stages, in the hopes that I create a beautiful dress that she’ll be proud to wear. Wish me luck!
