I made this from Simplicity 2444 which I had seen so many incredible dresses made from. I had fit issues with the bodice so it was quite a battle raising the bodice, deepening the armscye, redrafting the neckline and redrafting the sleeve! In the end I’m really proud of the result but I’m not sure how quickly I’d return to this pattern. I have scars. Emotional ones.
