This dress has so many details: back and front pleat on the skirt, a vent in the back of the blouse, a pointed yolk, pleats in the front and so many more things.

I love this pattern, as it is the first pattern that was too big for me. I shaved over 4" off the hips, a few from the waist and a couple from the bust. The shoulders are a bit too long, so Ill alter those on the next make up, but I do like this dress.


Also I feel this is my most 'vintage' dress because of all the treatments I did to it. It isnt serged, I ran out of zippers so I made a placket with snap closures. The pleating, tucking sheering and all. It turned out so nice.
