I made this dress several years ago using the bodice of a 1970s pattern. The bust points are way too high but once they were cut there was no changing it – now that I have a lot more pattern knowledge I would like to make the bodice again with better placed bust points. The collar was super difficult – I have attempted the same collar with not much better results. One day I might get it right. I love the sleeves – I have used the sleeves pattern several times but now make them with more room for my apparently large upper arms!. Hope you like – it is one of my favourites. It suits my style and figure and I love the fabric.
