It's amazing how fast a project can be finished when it fits. Just a few tweaks: SBA, sway back, lengthened bodice, cut the back a size larger than front and gave the waist and skirt a bit more ease. No wonder I avoid projects that have to fit more than one half of my body. Since I have this pattern nailed, maybe I will just make more versions of it for the rest of my sewing career.
I think the belt makes it, though. It's a grosgrain ribbon with a vintage plastic buckle.
