A simple, but fitted sheath dress in a classic royal blue colour. I made this more fitted around the waist than the pattern by adding in some vertical darts in the back and taking in the side seams quite a bit to get it to sit quite close to my body, but kept the flowiness of the skirt. I also lengthened the dress by about 10cm so it would be appropriate to wear to work. I love the look of the original pattern, but the shapeless mini shift is not very flattering on my body shape.
