Audrey Hepburn would have loved this dress! From the small cap sleeves to the gathered skirt, this graceful classic will flatter every woman. Set-in side panels shape a lovely bust, and wearing a narrow belt gives additional waist emphasis.

    Wow…!! This is so lovely. A simple and elegant dress that would go for any event. Yeah, it is true that you will need to make some changes in the pattern according to your physique, but that is same for every kind of dress in this world. hotel catalina island

    Love this dress, though I agree with the comment below about the neck bagging out, so I highly recommend making a muslin of the bodice at least. Also, I’m 5’7" and this dress was midi length on me, so depending on your style, you might have to make length adjustments.

    Cute dress, however it bags out in the neck, you’ll need to adjust your pattern to correct; also shoulders are very slopped, so again adjust accordingly.
