I followed a vintage simplicity pattern I got from etsy for the first time and chose to do the one with V-neck but shorten the dress length and the sleeves. It was my first attempt with vintage pattern so I was a little skeptical but the instructions were surprisingly easy to follow. It was also my first experience sewing a zipper and as I do not have a zipper foot, I chose a normal white zipper instead of an invisible zipper. Thank goodness it turned out all right, phew!
