The pattern I used Is Vogue 2850 Anna Sui. I’m not so crazy about the pattern itself, it runs very small. I’m a size 8 on my good days:) and that is the size I ordered. Well I should have got the size 18 according to their sizing. For this reason I had a lot of alteration on the pattern itself. The other problem I had to solve was the waistline. It was very high, I felt like it made the blouse very bulky with the wide flounce around the neckline.But after all it came out good. Fabric is cotton blend organdy, the bodice is lined with the same fabric. I finished it with rolled hem with decorative stitch instead of the serger.
