Taking in the sides of the Twenties dress

So what I ended up doing is drawing a line along the pins to take in the sides, then sewed along those lines on my machine. It was a bit tough to get on, as the waist is much narrower than my hips, but look at it. The fit is way better now!

Not perfect, it's a bit loose over the lower belly, but certainly a lot better, as compared to the last picture. Pardon my dark underwear showing through, I just threw it on to show it to you. A twenties-styled dress is supposed to be very straight up and down, and I took the waist in just a bit more than that, but it mostly hits the silhouette.

Now that these are done, I can finish the armcyes. Then I can dye it. I'm really excited to see the finished product, so maybe I'll dive right in and move on!
