I'm quite happy to show you the vintage Advanced dress I sewed this week! I loved the design the second I saw it: love the pleated bodice with the ties detail, love the big skirt with darts and loooove the front closure (zippers are quick to sew!). The instructions are clear and easy, I only had to slightly change the order of the final steps because I used an invisible zipper.
The fabric wrinkles horribly because of the zigzags I used to finish the edges! It's too thin!!! I had just ironed it so it's not accidental :( I still want to wear my dress because I really like it, the shape and the colour are so nice. I thought a petticoat could improve the situation, alas:
Well I guess I'll wait for my serger to arrive (yeeeees^^) and make another one, with a more suited fabric. A shot of the anorexic petticoat:
