Look, look what I made!

I am so excited. Today at work, we had no more costume sewing to do. So my boss told me I could work on a project of my own choosing, such as a skirt or an apron. I knew what I wanted to make:

Why is the curve of my armhole in the back so strange? Haha.
A body block, aka a sloper. (They *are* the same thing, right?) I started with the bodice, because that's what I have the most trouble with. This is my first draft. In two hours, I created the paper pattern and cut it out of muslin. Now I just need to sew it together, and then someone who actually knows how to fit will fit it on me.

I'm beyond excited for this.
