Do you think it would be possible to alter the pattern for this dress McCalls 6069 to make something more like this Lara Dress Lara Dress?
In hindsight I think the second version (the lara dress by Sasha Drake) style would suit my body (pear shaped) better.
I'm not experienced in drafting so maybe I should scrap the McCalls 6069 idea and try to find a pattern version which is closer to a style which I think would suit me better.

To answer my own question, I think this pattern would be more on the mark.

i am thinking about doing this pattern also, but without the overlay. The tissue fit I did looked good.
