I made this dress using Very Easy Vogue pattern No V8232. It was a pretty easy pattern, that introduced me to the facings and princess seams techniques. The pattern also included a jacket, which I also made, and turn out very good.
I made the dress using a not so good of a quality cotton fabric. I will redo it, making a muslin first, to slightly make it smaller at the bust, and then use a better fabric.
