Hollywood 1059 took a lot of work. To start with, it’s sized for a 34bust. This was another big grade up. Then, because of the front center pleats. doing a FBA and low bust adjustment were difficult. I had lots of difficulty applying the piping to the neckline because of the front center point. I’m still not quite sure about this dress. While I really like wartime hair and shoes, I just don’t think it suits me as well as the 50s styles. The 50’s styles suit me whether I’m slim or with some extra weight. This goes back to my post about picking styles. Your body type doesn’t change much with weight, but when you have some extra weight, working WITH your type is even more important. This dress goes against my type.
