This is my first sewing project since school. I loved the 60’s dress by Alexandra but as an hourglass lady with broad shoulders I attempted a full bust adjustment as well puffed sleeves.
I did a mashup of the many instructions for this out there but ended up with so much extra fabric I added some additional top stitched features that to be honest I am quite proud of.
I got this off ebay and absolutely love it
