Here’s a cocktail dress I finished back in July (time flies!). I’ve worn it only once because the otherwise lovely olive satin gave me an allergic reaction! I had underlined the bodice with a cotton voile, but didn’t bother making a slip. Well, lesson learned!

I’m not super happy with the fit in the bust area, but I really love the V shaped bodice and I think the dress turned out pretty well overall.

  1. I see what you mean about the fit in the bust. Sometimes it’s just hard to get it right, though, especially with vintage patterns and designs. Oh well. It’s still a beautiful dress!
