I'd made the blouse version several times and liked the way it looked on me so thought the dress would too. Oh boy was I wrong. It looked awful.
You can't really tell from the photo but it has a cut around the body just above the third button and two darts under the bust so that it's a kind of an A line when worn or rather more like a sack of potatoes on me. LOLL
I love the buttons though.
So now what to do with it. After having it crumpled up in a corner for some time I thought I'd take it to my daughter and see what she thought. She didn't like it on me either so I told her to try it on and I was astonished at the difference. It fitted her perfectly and she looked so nice in it. Problem solved, she is now the new owner of my dress. Oh to be youthful looking!!
