I made this dress from Vogue 8944 pattern. It is a fully lined dress with the bodice split into a yoke and a bodice bottom part, seamed and topstitched. It was a nice and easy pattern to make, however, I had to make some fit adjustments in order for it to fit well. I added 1/2" to the bodice bottom half of the front and back pieces, added 1" to the sleeve length, and had to take in about 2" at the center back, as seen in one of the photos attached. This makes a nice, casual dress to throw on and go, so I like that about it. I just wish my fit adjustments were a little better, perhaps taking out the back darts and making the seam line closer down the center back extending into to the skirt.
