    Gorgeous! I love to see these vintage patterns on real people since the drawings are always so distorted in the drawing.

    It’s even more beautiful than your lovely tree. It could use a petticoat to give it some oomph, though, for those extra-special occasions. It’s really cute!

    So cute! I love it! When altering the pattern, just measure your bust and your waist, and then use a measuring tape to figure out how big the garment would be once it’s made, then divide up the extra that you need! :)
