Dress #104 from the September 2011 magazine. Graded up to a size 48 in the bodice before adding a 2in full bust adjustment (similar to this one).The waistband and skirt were graded to a size 52.
The material isn’t as sheer as the chiffon used in the magazine garment so I didn’t double face all the pieces as per the instructions. The other changes made included lengthening the lining to create an underskirt for modesty’s sake ;-). I tried out the puff sleeve but it restricted movement too much so the sleeve is just finished with a narrow hem instead.
Cobalt blue poly satin with a matte sheen rather than all out shiny.
