Description

Made using Vogue 8555, but with a bodice front of my own design, a big feminine floral dress to satisfy my inner girly girl, who likes to twirl…
Modifications are an added waist tie, to tie at the back and nip that waist in, and an attached petticoat to increase the volume of that skirt even more.

The details of the bodice construction are here
