I created this dress as a mock-up for a dress a have yet to make. I correctly estimated many corrections in the fitting (not all of them made in the photos) and made this one! It turned out so much to my liking that I’ve taken the time to line and hem it since the photos! It has many pieces for the bodice (11 on the front – not counting the lining!) and they all had to be slightly altered! I’m still not sure that it’s snug enough!
My pattern started out as McCall’s M6561, which is out of print now.
I posted on my blog about this project, too!
I made it out of a bed sheet I got at the thrift store for half-off! My zipper is vintage from my Nonna’s stash that I inherited.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
