Emma One Sock in 2016.
When I unpacked the fabric after our recent move I no longer thought there was too much green and decided it was time to sew myself that sheath dress.
Instead of digging out my BurdaStyle magazines to trace the dress pattern, I used Butterick 5719.
It's a Lifestyle Wardrobe pattern from 2011 that includes a jacket, skirt, and pants in addition to the dress. It also includes separate pattern pieces for cup sizes A/B, C, and D. I used the D cup pattern piece.
The good news is I didn't need a back walking vent!
I'm still struggling with range of motion in my shoulders due to the surgery. It wasn't easy but I managed to get this dress zipped up completely (by myself) so I could take pics for the blog. But when it was time to unzip myself I tried, and tried, but just couldn't get myself unzipped! I almost had to wear this to my physical therapy appointment, LOL. I took a break, and with a lot of patience (and a bit of a struggle) I finally managed to get it unzipped.
