This is the Colette Patterns Licorice Dress. I added a ruffle at the hem as it was too short for me to wear. I did not have enough material when I was cutting out the pattern. So I improvised with the left over pieces of material.
I used what I could find for the lining as I have never done a dress w/lining. I also did do the invisible zipper on the back. I must admit I messed it up a lot. I will get better with more practise. I really was frustrated at times because I misunderstood how to sew the lining to the zip. I got my order of steps mixed up. So rule of thumb is to stop & come back to it later. I am very glad I finished it. I will make another Licorice dress because it is very comfortable and office appropriate.
Now that I have a dress form it will be much easier to fit. I found using the form I could work faster and see where I needed to fix things up.
Charmeuse for the shell & acetate for the lining. Invisible zipper.
