Added Jul 21, 2012
I added 2 cm to the torso, since many reported the pattern as a little short. You can also see this in the pictures of the original, where the bottom of the bust piece is (in my opinion) too low. I’m really glad I did that, because it would’ve turned out to short if I hadn’t!
Also, I added some height on the back piece and skipped the centre back strap. I love silvermink’s sailor style Alison, and did something similar with the back straps as halter-neck is a no-go for me.
The bust piece was a little bit saggy, so I added the button in front to ‘fix’ the gathers in the front tab.
I lowered the side seams 2.5 cm to get an even more vintage look. I just folded and tacked the hem, and then sewed an elastic strap as I went along without pulling it.
