The DVF dress

I know I planned originally to modify and use the mock-wrap Simplicity 4074 pattern for the hexagonal print, but, y'know, Hancock's had Vogue patterns on sale last weekend for about 4 bucks each, so I picked up the real McCoy...Vogue 8379. Traced and altered it 8 through the shoulders, and a 14 plus everywhere else. It was really depressing to add so much to the waistline; I'm hoping that it doesn't just look frumpy.

I'll definitely be basting-and-fitting as I go...
