Have you ever wondered how exactly this pattern worked (I know I did)?
You can't really see from the pattern, but there is an underbody camisole which is attached to the skirt. The 'jacket' is completely separate from the dress. I finished up the underbody and skirt this weekend and here's what it looks like:
If the bodice wasn't so low cut, I would contemplate just wearing this on it's own. The v-point is very flattering. Though it is definitely making me think about buying another EvaDress reproduction pattern with very similar lines (a 1938 McCall pattern):
I wrapped each seam edge with the seam binding like such:
The inside seams look like this:
Phew! And that's just the underbody and skirt....now to the jacket!
