This started as an attempt at the dress pattern in the Burdastyle book, but I ran into some problems with the bodice (I have an asymmetrical torso due to scoliosis, so fitting bodices can be a real pain in the butt). I wound up using the skirt portion of the Burdastyle dress pattern and attaching it to a bodice adapted from Vogue 8615.
The dress needs a wider belt, but overall, I’m happy with how it turned out considering it’s cobbled together from different patterns.
