This is my second try on AMC dress. This time, I altered the pattern and made the neckline smaller (if that’s a proper description). Anyway, this dress is more comfortable than the previous one, since I don’t have to worry about the way I sit and so on. This pattern version I attend to upload but I’m having difficulties with making printable version of the pattern. I’ll do my best and try to post it soon!
Since I posted a pattern I thought it wold be useful to show you which alterations I did on the original pattern. The top part of the dress was too wide on the back, while on the waist it was fitting well. That made the zipper stand not so close to the body. So, I made darts on the back top piece of the dress, to narrow it. See red line on the fourth image (green line marks the stich originally designed by the pattern).
