    you did a great job on this pattern. I have never done this type of collar and i found this pattern and the collar to be extremely hard -→ i gave up and have not gone back to try it. I see though, based on your creation it is a cute dress.

    That looks amazing – the fit is perfect on your bust. I’m thinking about making this, but don’t have much experience in fit alterations – how difficult was it?

      Alterations in front are not so hard – the ones on the back are much more complicated to do on your own. My advice is to start with rare, loose stitch and patiently deepen darts.

      I used pattern “5/2010 Denim button-down dress”, but I had to modify it a lot :)

      Oh, I didn’t know it’s called “gingham check”, I always knew it as “vichy”. Thank you!
