So first, my prior posts on how everything went together.
And the finished dress!
The blouse ended up being a little big on me still, despite my sizing adjustments. In comparison to my first dress though, it still fits so much better.
I love the bodice detailing I did with the brown accents and the extra work I did on the inner lining makes it fit much better.
One of the larger changes I had made was to separate the bodice from the skirt due to sewing technique. Thankfully both alterations went together smoothly and went put together, both look like they're attached to each other.
