    This is my second Gathered Dress and I really love the pattern. It gives me a lovely fit at the bust and shoulders and is so comfortable and easy to wear. I made a size 8 and changed the bust lines to a size 6. I have a 33″ bust and small cup size so this is a standard alteration for me. I widened the bottom hem a little (1/2″ on each side seam) and otherwise, the pattern is unchanged. This is the short sleeve view. The pockets are roomy and the dress is easy to wear. I did add binding to the back waist seam to finish the seam edge and also around the front and back neck facing. Read more details and find more photos here:
