Description

I knew I was getting into trouble by buying a pattern for tall women, since I’m only 1m66 high. But I didn’t care, when I saw this pattern, I just had to make it. After looking at a lot of tutorials I managed to shorten the bodice. I also narrowed the sleeves because I thought they were pretty wide. To make sure I did everything well, I even made a muslin, which I normally never do and it fitted perfectly, hooray! I’m very happy with this dress. Oh, and I also love my tights under that dress :p
