Simplicity 1080 Dottie Angel Dress

Fabric, Notions and Alterations

Around 2m.  This was from the “vintage” section in Abakhan’s.

  • only bias binding needed for neckline and sleeves.  Other seams are French seams, and no zipper required.

Others I have seen seem  to have less ease above the bust then mine, so maybe I need to alter it here – unfortunately most people seem to be posting pictures without themselves wearing he garment, so it’s hard to judge. I had to lower the tucks by 2cm, and could have happily lowered them further now I’ve seen it again.  I can’t tell if the capped sleeves are overly gapey or not.
