My latest project is a vintage pattern, Advance 4779, a 1940's shirtdress. I loved the snazzy pocket detailing and had to make one of my own.
I predictably ran into a lot of problems fitting the bodice, since the pattern is for a 36" bust and I'm more like a 32" bust with shoulders proportioned for a 34" bust. I had to take in an inch and a half at both of the side seams. Predictably, this did crazy things to the armholes and I had a creative time getting the sleeves in.
