The pattern used for this dress was the bodice of Vogue V8896 and a self drafted skirt with the following alterations:
-Added a double seam bell sleeve with elastic
-The skirt was made by cutting 2 pieces of fabric 18x47" long and 1 29x47" sew the 18" pieces to the sides of the 29" piece leaving room 3.5" from the top for the pockets.
Connect the skirt to the bodice by pleating the skirt as you go around to fit the bodice.
I finished the inside by serging the seams.
