Pattern V 1151 by Cinthia Steffe

The original pattern can be seen here.
My version made for Amandine:
(my dummy is bigger than Amandine...)
This is my added detail to finish the facing and the hem too.
The highlights of this pattern are the visible zipper, and the collar, as well as the slim shape, perfect for a young lady.
It is a pleasure to sew, with the exception of the bottom of the zipper, which I did not completely master. I'm sure their is a trick I did not understand, but the result is good, nevertheless.
The fabric is a stretch jeans, of good quality, which made sewing even more pleasant.

It turned out beautifully. Amandine will look beautiful.

Super smart pattern. I like your contrast bias trim on the inside too.

That's clever! I'm sure Amandine looks good in it.

You do such nice work, Vero, and especially the extra bit of love that only Amandine will see.

What a lovely dress. I love the neckline. The detail inside is beautifully done.
