I added sleeves to this princess seam sheath dress. Sort of going for the Mad Men Joanie dress. The colour is off in the photo – it’s more of a teal green. And wow, I had to cut this dress way down! It turned out pretty good fit-wise. The arm holes are a bit weird at the back – I didn’t do a great job of shortening the bodice to accommodate my short waisted torso. Still, it turned out great and was a very easy pattern to sew. Will definitely make this again. Can’t wait to wear this to work!
Double knit stretch jersey. I eliminated the zipper and back split because of the stretch.
