InstructionsPretty easy pattern. I changed the length of the skirt overlay because I didn't quite like it according to the pattern. It's like to remember that the pattern is a guide not an absolute. Just do what you like.
Type of item: Clothing
Kiwi colored linen-rayon blend
What are you most proud of?
The fit. I've been working really hard on fitting garments. It looks better on me than the dress form. This was my first full-bust-alteration. Worked great. Now I'm really stoked and have 5 more dressed lined up!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you don't already know your necessary pattern adjustments, start with a muslin (cheap fabric). BTW, choose top and dress sizes based on your upper chest measurement instead of bust measurement.
