I used the Azalea pattern, but at some point had some problems following the instructions, so i improvised. I sewed this dress for a wedding, it got lots of compliments. I decided to put the belt right under the breast as it works better for my body type. I’m not exactly stick thin, but it worked well for my figure. I lengthened the upper part so it would fall better and made the skirt shorter. Great pattern:)
