My attempt at Danielle pattern without sleeves. I tried to make the pattern little bigger since I’m between 44 and 46 – and I did it, to my demise.
Had to rip seams 6 times and sew them again, they didn’t quite line up every time! Also, front upper part is cut upside down, so it looks little darker than the rest.
Instead of bust darts I sewed pleats, because I couldn’t get rid of the “pointiness”.
Nevertheless, I’m very happy how it turned out. This is the only dress in my wardrobe and I love it.
