London, United K...
Pattern: Vogue 2429 that I’ve had for about 7 years and never used. I made view B.
Fabric: Nankeen fabric from Shanghai, white cotton for lining
Time: 4 evenings
What I liked about it: I love the pattern of the fabric and the bodice fits nice and snugly in a way I would never be able to get from a shop bought dress. The joys of home sewing!
What I would change: Unfortunately the colour is still running from the fabric despite pre-washing it, so I’m going to have to wash it again. The gathering around the front could be neater – next time I’d be tempted to gather it at the end rather than before it’s all been put together; how much you gather it really effects the fit around the bust. The only other problem is that it gapes a little around the arms around the top of the bodice – but am pretty happy with it in general.
