I made numerous tweaks to the Vogue dress taking deeper seams below bust down on front princess seams as well as taking deeper seams in upper back to back waist line. I also took deeper side seams using 7/8 inch instead of 5/8.
The pattern has cutting lines for 14/16 and then separate cutting line for 18-22. With the deeper seams taken I almost think I could have used a 12 except at the bust area.
I only need to stitch bias tape around neckline, hem sleeves, dress and attach fastener at the back neckline and I will have a new dress to wear next week.
My next project may be a faux leather skirt. I also want to make another Vogue dress pattern,
I have fabric washed and ready to go. Fabric is from EOS and is a print.
I plan to make the one with sleeves but change the length to ballet or 3/4 length.
