I ordered the Symington pattern as I only have a wedding dress boned bodice pattern; I thought that was best. I made up a quick calico, but unfortunately it didn't fit at all well. I needed to change the height of the bust shaping, bringing it higher up the body, and the front point looks odd. I used fabrics I had worked with before - cotton bobbinet, cotton lace and silk satin - as I was using an unfamiliar pattern and new techniques. I dyed the bobbinet with tea to better match the silk and lace. I really enjoyed having a go.
