Update on Butterick 5455 Dress

I've made a toile of the bodice because I have quite a skinny and long torso and want to make sure the waist band isn't floating around my middle. I want it to fit closer to my body. The rest of the bodice seems fine, but as you can see from the picture the waist band comes away from the body form. So, I will have to adjust this.

  1. It's looking really great. Will you be just taking it in at the side seams to pull in the waistband?
    If I could offer my two cents, it looks like you could take the center front seam in a bit towards the bottom where it attaches to the waistband, but I doubt that would fix the whole skinny waist issue. I wish I had that issue! heh
