I managed to cut out, line and sew a bodice for another romantic era dress, using the S&S pattern, one of my favourites. I tried a different neckline and will have it close at the back. I've used the long sleeve option, as it is coming into Winter here and the days are quite chilly.
This is a most flattering pattern, particularly for larger shaped bodies, and is the one garment that I receive compliments on if I'm wearing it. This time I'm using a particularly lovely fabric, and will share it with you when I have a chance.
These style dresses are seen in the movie, Wives and Daughters. If you haven't seen it yet, you must! Its absolutely gorgeous and has a great storyline.
