Description

I made this dress using Vintage Vogue Pattern V2962. I made quite a few alterations to the pattern, I took a bit of the fullness out of the halter neck & the skirt. I’m still thinking I should have taken a little more out of the halterneck as it’s a little puffy. I also added a tie to the halterneck (the pattern suggests using a loop & button). Finally the pattern called for the dress to be closed with a heap of tiny buttons… I did that once for my wedding dress & never again. So I used a zip instead.

    I agree about the puffiness around the halter. Maybe a little more adjustment? But overall, you did a wonderful job. It has a retro feel to it.

    Looks great! The fabric is also beautiful for such a dress.

    The style and fabric suit you perfectly. I would love to make this myself—coverage on the top can be a problem with these kind of dresses, but yours is tasteful and just lovely. Congratulation!
