What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Vogue V2962 Link to website or photo voguepatterns.mccall.com/v2962-products-8314.php?page_id=943 What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be careful the hand drawn pictures on the pattern are a little deceptive. The skirt & halter are a lot fuller than drawn, (at the gathers). There is a photo of the dress made up in some of the pattern books & online which gives a better idea. Also the drawn pictures suggest the skirt will stick out more, If you want the skirt to stick out that much, you will probably need a petticoat or crinoline. Again the pictures in the pattern book or online give a much better indication of what the dress will look like.
