One of the really good part is that we are almost the same measurements 1-3 cm apart for all but under bust and waist - she is more slim then me there but that is not a problem with most of the patterns I make. So I could used my already traced patterns on her as well.
I kind of promised her a while back a McCall's 7542 so we started with that one in one of the new fabrics we picked together a cream floral print rayon.
The tied first my blue dress and it was quite some extra fabric in the back so I folded the back by 2 cm before cutting hers and that seemed to have fixed most of the problems.
I also done it about 8 cm shorter.
We bought 13 new fabrics on our small trip to a depot just outside town and I received 17 from an online shop that sent me swatches. 30 fabrics... but they were all really cheap compared to my local stores that I visit often on my way home and where I still got 2 fabrics, again ... on different days at least.So 32 new fabric, 87 items to sew debt and 5 items sewn and reviewed since I last count so I now need to sew 151 item till the end of the year and not buy anything else to make the new year resolution.... just impossible.... I have made a few items for myself as well and some simple things for Eva too that i still need to take photos of.
