This is a dress I made for my birthday years ago – from a gorgeous Vogue Chloe dress pattern (pictured). It has a concealed zip down the front, a fitted bodice and very deep pleats in the skirt. The dress no longer fits, but was a perfect fit straight from the pattern at the time I made it. I will try to dig up some old photos of myself wearing it … I now have the pattern in a larger size, found in an op shop, and am planning to remake it in a plain block colour.
