I had some problems with this pattern. The armholes had some gaping (I added darts in the sheer dress).
It was also too low cut and I think I'm wearing the sheer layer backwards. And the hem is funky. And the shoulder straps kept falling down. Other than that I like it.
I don't think this is my most flattering dress, but it feels comfortable and I did get a few compliments, so that's good. What I like about this outfit are the shoes. They were on a style segment on the local station. I saw them and ran to The Mall of America and Forever 21. I had to hunt them down (big store), but I prevailed and they are mine!
The legs almost match the dress!

This is Vogue 1102. It does fit, but it just does not look right. I even went out and bought a bra converter, but that didn't work out either. I tried a top underneath and still crappy. My mom suggested a bolero, but I think I just need to donate this one. If you do want to make this pattern I would do a knit on top and something that is soft, not crisp.
