Hit a snag with the dress

My daughter and I hit a snag with the bodice of her dress. We want it to fit properly and we think the size she cut is too small so now we have to re-work it so it fits her but still looks right with the skirt and sleeves. I am terrible with fittings so we have contacted a family friend (who is also our piano teacher) to see if she is available to help. She got the gathering done (with my help! :) and the sleeves seams are done, but she's thinking about making new ones so they are a bit bigger. She's got a great start. I know she would like to get it done this weekend if she can. She was a trooper and posed for a photo. ;)

      She was probably feeling that way but didn't say it because I had to call her away from what she was doing when I was ready to post so I could share a photo too.

          Thanks, we need it! Thankfully she does have fabric left to re-do the bodice pieces. Just hoping our friend is available to help.

              She's getting there, Brande Grieder, as I was telling Magen in another post, I think she'll be done everything but the zipper in a couple of days. We have to get back to Jo-Ann's to exchange the zipper.

                We probably go where you do or to the Super JoAnn's, but the super is even farther away but it has better fabric selection. That's where we had to go for her fabric. We don't mind 15 minutes now that we are 5-10 from town! :)
