I started tracing the pattern pieces for my next big project tonight, and I'm afraid! It's this Vogue dress, view A, and it's complicated. Plus I'm planning to make it sleeveless, so I have to kind of make that part up. And it's in satin-y fabric, which I've never really worked with. And I'm not at all certain the bodice is going to fit me without some alterations.

All in all, I'm suspecting there are going to be some phone calls to my mom before this thing is complete.

On the plus side, I have plenty of time before the wedding I want to wear it to, so if it doesn't work out, I can always go shopping. And my fabric is pretty. :)

I'm going to start on a muslin of it (or the bodice part, at any rate) tomorrow - wish me luck!
