Pattern Description: Misses dress with front and sleeve variations. This has become my tried and true basic dress pattern since I've perfected the fit in the hollow chest/shoulder area, thanks to the shoulder princess seams.
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.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: In addition to the fitting alterations I made on my previous dress from the same pattern, I tapered the sleeves quite a bit and then drafted an extension for the contrasting cuff.
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! It comes with many variations and you can add your own to create a designer look.
