This pattern is one of my favourites. I have used this bodice many times compined with different types of skirts. The funny thing is that none of the versions I’ve made has a gathered skirt as the pattern suggests:)
For this one I used the skirt of model 125 from 11/2007. I didn’t line the bodice but I finished the armholes and the neckline with bias binding. I prefer to do this because this way I reduce the gaping at the openings. What do you think?
