Vogue 9253 in Cotton/Linen
Back at home, I think I had read every post on the Internet about Vogue 9253 and the thing that always came through was the depth of that neckline and the best way to raise it! My solution was to redraft that v neck, not to overlap or stitch it up which seemed to be the most common solutions. I redrew the bodice pattern on a piece of paper and then squared up from the waistline which isn't at the waist at all really, but under the bust, creating a centre front seam of around 15cm. I then redrew the neckline finishing at the original shoulder. To test the fit of the new bodice front, I made a bodice muslin.
I really love this dress, and all the planning was certainly worth it. I will definitely make another one of these in the future.
