This is my late April dress for MAGAM Challenge based on Burdastyle SVM Louisa Drop-waist Dress size 34 with modification and self-drafted circle skirt. You can check out my flat sketch and fabric here.
I did some modification on the bodice pattern,
- Added front and back dart, inserted the zipper in the CB
- Made the shoulder wider, added 1.5 cm from the shoulder line to the armhole and 2 cm from the shoulder line to the neckline.
- Also made the front neckline higher 2 cm and back neckline lower 2 cm.
The sewing progress was fine because this is the second time I worked on both patterns, you can see my first work on the dress here and the peplum here
After all, I am very happy with how my dress turned out, it's very summery and comfortable. The neckline is in right proportion and the armhole is just fine without feeling tight.
As I am participating Me Made May 2014, today I am wearing my new dress and went out to the Venetian - Macau for little shopping and enjoying the weekend with my family. Here is a picture of me wearing my dress - front view,

The last picture is the hem line, finally I managed to sew a very nice and clean hem for a circle skirt, happy me!! I followed a great technique with video of narrow hemming a circle skirt by Gertie, watch the video here . And here you can see the result! Fantastic!!
