Inspired by the gorgeous Burberry Prosum green lace dress, I used Vogue pattern 8766 view E as a guide to make a similar one. I could’ve used the ruffle pattern that came with view B, but I thought that would’ve created too much bulk with the lace and lining all gathered up. So instead, I modified the skirt pattern by changing the shape of the hem and adding a flounce using the slash and spread method. The pattern also comes with darted sleeves which I did not find flattering. I drafted shorter, close fititng ones in place. As well, I did not choose to fully line the bodice. I traced a sweetheart bust line from the original bodice pattern as an alternative.
