Description

I made this dress form V 1161, which is a great pattern! I cut a 6 and it is really slim fitting and sexy. I want to remake it in red silk! I got the fabric for 1 dollar at an estate sale a few weeks ago and I really wanted to use it. I strongly suggest trying this pattern if you have it! It is a great dress!

    Yummy. Saucy. Love it. I think i’ve got this pattern somewhere. I’ll put the zip in the side, though. Back zips get me contorted. I like the back kick at the hem. Nice.
