A gift for my boyfriend’s mother for Christmas. Black fabric is always hard to photograph so bear with me. It is the pleated bodice and long sleeve from New Look 6000, without the collar and sleeve cuffs. I lined the dress with the darted bodice pattern piece. I graded the pattern from a 6 at the bust to a 10 at the waist and an 8 at the hips. It was a bit of a mission grading around the pleated waist but it turned out ok.
