I combined two patterns for this dress, the ‘contour bust dress and tute by miasu’ for the fitted bust and the ‘marie 9177’ pattern with a zipper in the back for the skirt.
I am quite pleased with how it turned out, considering it took me forever to make the bust fit…but I suppose that’s all part of the learning curve :-)
