An old dress of beautiful fabric but poor design re-worked into something I will actually wear. It started out with 3/4 length puffed sleeves, no shaping and a bad neckline. I modified an old Vogue pattern and the bodice didn’t quite match the pattern so I had to add many small darts to the neckline to help it fit. Fiddly.
