I am in love with the dress pattern since the first day I received the magazine that my sister in law brought it from Portugal. I used 2 yards of green brocade fabric from my stash.
I chose size 34 for the bodice dress and size 38 for the skirt. I drew a new pattern for the bodice because the minimum size from the original pattern is 36. Then I have to adjust the bodice to the skirt pattern ( I had a vary size between the body and the skirt)
