I made this dress using a vintage pattern – Butterick 3212. It’s made from a heavy wool jersey fabric, and I omitted the back zip as it was pretty stretchy. I had to take it in a lot for it to fit better, I’m wondering if I should have gone down a size…
I’m very pleased with it though, and really look forward to wearing it this winter.
