I shortened the bodice by 25cm but it meant it was more an empire line dress, which is fine but next time I think I will make the full length bodice so the waist is closer to my waist. I normally have to shorten everything. The instructions were very clear and it came together easily.
I am happy with this dress. I like the neckline and its very comfortable. I think I will get a great deal of wear out of this dress.
Next time I will lengthen the bodice and also just lengthen the skirt a little. I think I will make quite a few of these dresses. They are comfortable and easy to sew. Great for layering as well.
Happy Sewing !
