Dress almooost ready
I've made some changes compared to my last version of this dress. This is my third make (see first here and second here), and I'm still tweaking the pattern! I'm hoping third time's the charm... For a better fit, I shortened the neckline, to prevent gaping, and added a fitted underlining to the top front bodice pieces, to control the spread of the extra fullness from the gathers. Stylewise, I reduced some fullness in the sleeves, and also turned the gathers into pleats (on sleeves and both front and back bodice).
I've also for the first time ever made a shirt sleeve placket!
