Vogue 2989 Black Dress Completed

The black ponte dress from Vogue 2989 is completed.
My alterations are
add 3.5" to the hem to come just below the knee
forward head and high round back alteration to both fronts and the back, and all the facing pieces.
Cut the pleated overlay with a curved hem as short of fabric
slightly shorten the sleeves as using 1/2" coverhem finish
16 upper bodice moving to an 18 at the waist.
Did not use the back zip. Added a 6" long centre back slit for walking ease.
This is great on, sophisticated yet comfortable, and the neckline shaping stops a wool jacket from touching the neck of the wearer.

here's the Vogue versions (in a smaller size!)
I am really pleased with this and it will be useful in my work wardrobe.

Here's what the collection looks like now
Those ivory tops are already proving very useful in the wardrobe.
