This is the first dress I made by myself successfully. It is a little black dress. I could not be more proud of myself. I thought the instructions were made easy enough for a beginner like me to understand. This was the first zipper I done correctly after many trial and errors. I made in with black cotton and lined it with white cotton for a contrast. Then I added the red belt for a splash of color.
Size cut- 16
Alterations- I Shortened the dress by two inches and added an inch to the bodice. Instead of sewing the boning to the lining I sewn it to the seam allowance. I also used medium fusible interfacing as underlining
Thing I would change: This pattern runs quite big so next time I will make it a size smaller with alterations.
