all those darts

As soon as I saw this pattern (dress 111) in the August magazine I was in love. Those darts, and that neckline! After a few adjustments to the pattern it’s a perfect fit!

The front bodice and skirt were cut on the fold so there’s no seam there.

I adjusted the sleeves in both lentgh and width, raised the armholes and adjusted the skirt for both a full but and for potruding front thights. I also took out a slight amount of width by not cutting seam allowance on the cb and side seams. It’s sewn on my serger so that took out about 1.5 cm in total.

The fabric is a dark red ponte milano, with a high viscose content. It’s lovely to wear, soft and warm.
