The dress was made with the bodice of McCalls M5927 with the following alterations:
-Added 1" to the front and back of the neck -Cut the front bodice piece 6" from the top to create an additional pattern piece and seam line-Faced the back and front bodice pieces-Reduced the diameter of the arm opening to create a slimmer sleeve-Cut the sleeve at 11" from the top to create a short sleeve
-Cut the sleeve 4.5" from the bottom to create a seam line
The skirt of the dress was self drafted made by:

-Cut one piece of that fabric in half lengthwise, sew a 5/8" seam basting 4" down from the top
