I had to upsize the pattern a bit and as it was a vintage pattern in a smaller size, so it was my first time using Swedish tracing paper. So exciting! I'm in love with the stuff and can't wait to use it on more patterns. I traced the vintage pattern and then enlarged the pattern on muslin. Sense and Sensibility's 'How to Resize a Pattern' article was a lifesaver! Elegant Musing's Vintage Primer was also helpful in getting me ready to work with my first vintage pattern.

I'm almost done with the dress and am looking forward to the final result. I'm just working through the red pleats and then I'll be attaching the skirt... More to come!
