This is the second time I have made this pattern. It fits quite well without any adjusting..however, this time I did something wrong. The top of the back bodice didn’t meet up. I had to find some way of covering the gap..hence the blue fabric and buttons. A little dodgy but it looks okay.
Pattern: Spotlight ‘retro expressive paper patterns’ 50’s style dress.
