Silk dress

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Vogue 1240 Link to website or photo voguepatterns.mccall.com/v1240-products-14151.php?page_id=854 What are you most proud of? Persevering to get it exactly right. It was very long through the armhole and I had a bit of a side-boob issue but I was very patient and carefully eased the armhole in and stitched some silk organza selvage strips on for stay tape and it fits beautifully through the armhole now. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Check the fit with a toile first because the armhole is abnormally long. Even though the pattern is rated easy it really isn't, I'd say it's average. It's worth putting in the effort to get it right because it's a stunning dress, it's extremely flattering.
