I used Vogue Vintage pattern V8728 to make this dress. It’s a design from 1946, and has a belt and side zip. The pattern was so much easier to make than I imagined, and the dress is really comfortable. The only modification I made was to shorten the bodice by 1.5 inches.
I used Liberty Tana Lawn “Dominika” from the AW2010 season.
