I thought this would be my Holy Grail dress. I've been tweaking the fit for....years. Lately, it's been hanging in my sewing room because it didn't fit anymore! I've lost weight again, and now it fits, so I thought I'd document the mockup before I take it apart to use it to alter the paper pattern and then make a real dress. I can see from the pictures that I don't like the cap sleeves; thank goodness. (Maybe the darts I pinned out of the neckline are too big?) I thought in the mirror they looked so good that longer sleeves wouldn't work. But I like longer sleeves. So the real version will have them.
Update: I made it up in a knit.
