Based on Elaine’s pattern. I altered the pattern in a few places, but not too much. I lowered the back neckline. I lengthened the torso 1 inch, and moved the darts out about 1/2 inch. Few other small things here and there.
I also cut a whole ’nother bodice out of the same material for the lining, instead of using the facings.
Clearance rack blue poly crepe ($2/yard), clearance rack poly chiffon, invisible zipper
