Pattern Description: Misses dress with front and sleeve variations.
Pattern Sizing: 4-20. I cut size 4 and sewed 1/2" side seams.
Fabrics Used: Vera Wang black tropical wool contrasted with white cotton sateen and lined with gray Dolce & Gabbana rayon lining.
Speaking of Dolce & Gabbana, this is the same pattern I used to knock off their fringed sheath. I used the same method of curving the shoulder princess seam into the side hip and I cut the side front pieces on the bias for a better fit.
I wanted to copy the shape of the collar as close as possible, so the left-brained nerd in me zoomed the images on a photocopier to life size and traced the lines onto the neck facings to form the pattern pieces.
Conclusion: I love this pattern for the basic bodice. It comes with many variations and you can add design elements to create a designer look for a fraction of the price.
