This dress has been along time coming. I started it a while ago, posting my muslin version last August. The time has been worth it though, because the dress came out just as I pictured and wanted. As a "Custom Fit" "Very Easy Vogue" the pattern lives up to its hype. A tropical wool was cut at a size 14 in the hip and graded to a 12-C through the bust. I would highly recommend either using a prototype to fit the dress or leave yourself plenty of seam allowance for altering to your body. I did fit this pattern before making my final version and still had to make adjustments through the ribs.
