Description

This pattern comes from La Maison Victor sewing magazine.

I made a few adjustments to the pattern: raised the darts by 2cm, increased the armscyes and neck opening, added a dead dart to accommodate my slouchy shoulders.

Overall, the pattern is great and I’d like to make another, more casual dress using this pattern.

    Всі вдягнулися в оксамит:-) Дуже вишукано… аристократичний стриманий образ (диявол у деталях спинки:-))

      Оксамит forever! Я все боялась з нього шити, але треба не боятись, а брати і шити :)
