Used vogue V1161 pattern. There was a little adjustment to the pattern addition to lengthening it with 4".
At first I wanted to use only the bodice and finish it with a full skirt, but after a week debate with myself I decided to use the original pattern. I kind of like the back flare of the skirt. I used the cording feature of my machine to add a little extra detail. Finished it with rolled hem, instead of using facing. It wasn’t a difficult project, but took me about 2 weeks to finish it because i was so undecided about it. I still don’t know if I love it, but definitely like it:)
