Description

This is my second try with this Vogue pattern, V1161 and it is much better this time! I sewn the size 8, made a SBA (smaller pleats at the waist) and graded to size 10 for the skirt, also added 1 inch at the hem. For this version I played with the daisy pattern, trying to put the flowers at specific spots. I like the result at the top front and although it was quite a puzzle I like the way the back pieces came out.

      Thank you Liliv! I guess this is the style of dresses that fits an A-type body shape…

    Gosh this looks like a complicated pattern, especially if you have to make adjustments like I would! But you’ve really nailed it and the pattern placement is perfect.
