Thanks to the Threads video, the inset corners on the shell came out beautifully. I only wish Threads had produced a video on how to sew an inset cut on the grain into a bias cut dres. I did it three times and there's still a bit of a ripple along the bias. So frustrating! You can't see it so much in the photo, but it's definitely there.
Now I can start on my own dress, which is also a Vogue pattern. Vogue describes it as 'Average', so heaven only knows what a mess I'll make of it! It's unlined but I'm using Vietnamese silk which has a crisp hand but is pretty lightweight, so I'll need to do a lining, and needless to say, I'm doing version B, which is not cut on the bias!
