Kota Kinabalu, M...
The pattern features a dangerously low plunging neckline and also low arm holes which is not for the faint hearted like me. I prefer not to wear the dress with a tube inside so I raised the neckline by a whole 5 inches and also raised the armholes (which created some slightly noticeable pulling at the side of the dress).
I rather like the ruffly bits at the shoulder which is a Leanne Marshall signature. The inverted V waistline creates a slim silhouette for the waist and the front pleats are very interesting. This pattern is rather easy to sew up but it took me a bit more time as I chose to line the bodice.
